About the Book

This is a collection of five plays by Arthur Milner. They were first produced between 1984 and 1990, during a period when the author was playwright-in-residence at the Great Canadian Theatre Company in Ottawa, Canada. All feature Milner’s fast-paced dialogue, quick and unexpected humor, and sharp political eye.
