The purpose of A Collection of Canadian Plays is to present to the Canadian public good plays which have received regional acclaim but not national publicity. We hope to achieve the widest possible dissemination of original Canadian plays, not only for those who may be interested in mounting their own productions, but also for those playgoers who may wish to recapture the pleasures of an evening well spent in the theatre.

The seven plays included in this volume are originally French language plays, written by playwrights from Quebec. They are presently being studied at various levels of the education system and are frequently performed by theatrical troupes. Each one in its own style, through its own gestures and words, reflects a particular kind of writing, a certain way of life, and, in the final analysis, an identical need for freedom. Thanks to the authenticity with which they are imbued and the original qualities that are evident in them, their authors may justly claim the right to be played in all languages and with equal depth.

This volume contains Four to Four , by Michel Garneau (translation Christian Bédard, Keith Turnbull); Greta, The Divine by Renald Tremblay (translation Allan van Meer); Waiting for Gaudreault , by André Simard (translation Henry Beissel, Arlette Francière); A Little Bit Left , by Serge Mercier (translation Allan van Meer); Dodo , by Serge Sirois (translation John van Burek); Looking for a Job , by Claude Roussin (translation Allan van Meer); Are You Afraid of Thieves? , by Louis-Dominique Lavigne (translation Henry Biessel).
