This delightful collection is the only work to bring together first-hand stories form Canada's acting community. Funny, shocking, embarassing and poignant, these are the stories actors tell each other, providing an intimate glimpse into the world behind the camera and beyond the footlights.Arranged thematically, it starts with "The BUg Bites", a chapter that focuses on early acting experiences ranging from William Shatner's first stage appearance and the evolution of Martin Short's "Ed Grimley" character, to Wayne and Shuster's initial meeting with Ed Sullivan. Other chapters look atmentor's, directors and producers, working with kids and animals, missed cues and lines, touring, audiences and fans, pranks and escapades, and live radio and T.V. performances.

Following in the footsteps of Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues comes The Naked I: Monologues from Beyond the Binary. Not willing to stop at discussing women's vaginas, The Naked I explores the bodies and experiences of transgender, gender-queer, and intersex individuals. The play, which includes monologues, duologues, and short sketches, shares stories about men with vaginas and women with penises, women born without vaginas, and a multitude of other differently-gendered people exploring their bodies and dissecting society's assumptions. Tender and heart wrenching, deeply funny and erotic, Davis takes the idea of a monologue-based play to a new level and boldly explains and explores the land beyond 'male' and 'female'.

Contemporary theatre, like so much of contemporary life, is obsessed with the ways of which information is detected, packaged and circulated. Running through forms as diverse as neo-naturalistic playwriting, intimately immersive theatre, verbatim drama, intermedial performance, and musical theatre, a common thread can be observed: theatre-makers have moved away from assertions of what is true and focussed on questions about how truth is framed. Commentators in various disciplines, including education, fine art, journalism, medicine, cultural studies, and law, have identified a ‘forensic turn’ in culture. The crucial role played by theatrical and performative techniques in fuelling this forensic turn has frequently been mentioned but never examined in detail. Political and poetic, Theatrical Performance and the Forensic Turn is the first account of the relationship between theatrical and forensic aesthetics. Exploring a rich variety of works that interrogate and resist the forensic turn, this is a must-read not only for scholars of theatre and performance but also of culture across the arts, sciences and social sciences.
