Edited and Selected by Simeilia Hodge-Dallaway, these publications create easy access to some of the plays featured in our Beyond The Canon library.
"Never again will a young actor trying to get to drama school only have three or four playwrights from which to choose from that reflect his or her primary cultural background. Never again will that playwright, looking for that instant hit from a multiplicity of theatrical voices have to Google and only find a small handful of African American ones" - Kwame Kwei-Armah
