“A highly affective memoir…threaded together in a back-and-forth structure that jumps across time and topic in a manner that is not unlike his TWP plays…remarkably honest and unsentimental … his eye is sharp.” -Alan Filewood, Theatre Research in Canada


“I think that the TWP book is really special: an anthology of original works from the early days of contemporary theatre making in Toronto, gathered together in the context of the originating theatre company, and lucidly contextualized by the playwright. I think this is a really excellent addition to our understanding of the birth of our modern Canadian theatre.” – Peter McKinnon, Professor of Theatre, York University
