Her Voice, Her Century
Four Plays About Daring Women
by David Cheoros

by Debbie Marshall
CDN$ 19.95

An original collection of four plays about unsung women from the history of the Canadian west. With theatrical twists and turns, Her Voice, Her Century takes us from an English doctor stationed in the middle of Alberta's unsettled north country, to the lives and work of two influential early Canadian photographers, to a Canadian journalist covering the First World War, to the scandalous relationship between an Alberta politician and a young secretary.

Written for contemporary audiences and drawing heavily on newspaper articles, private letters, and court transcripts, this collection captures an authenticity of voice, using techniques of historical drama to connect the dots. Includes photos from the Provincial Archives of Alberta along with details of original production choices and stills from the productions.

The plays included in the book are Letters from Battle River, The Unmarried Wife, and Respecting the Action for Seduction, co-written by David Cheoros and Karen Simonson, and Firing Lines, written by Debbie Marshall.
