About this book
GOVERNOR GENERAL'S AWARD WINNER
This new edition of Blood Relations and other plays contains the award-winning “Blood Relations” along with “One Tiger to a Hill,” “Generations,” and “Whiskey Six Cadenza.” Sharon Pollock is one of Canada’s leading playwrights, having written more than thirty plays and published over a dozen. Her work is produced in Canada, The United States, and abroad. The plays in this collection are vibrant and meaningful, and the history implicit in Pollock’s work rings just as true for today’s audiences and readers as it did when the plays were first performed.
“Did Lizzie or didn’t she? The question is posed at the beginning. It lingers, wraith-like, at the end. The play teases and ultimately haunts, shifting and shimmering like a kaleidoscope.”
“Sharon Pollock has managed to become Canada’s pre-eminent playwright of conscience ..."
“[This] collection demonstrates that in Sharon Pollock we have an accomplished and versatile playwright whose work seems destined to absorb audiences for many years to come.”
