- ItemBodies, form and nature: three Canadian plays and reproductive choice in the 1990s(Liverpool University Press, 2004) Scott, ShelleyThis article will deal with the ways in which three contemporary English-Canadian women playwrights have explored issues of reproductive choice in their creative work. In Susan G. Cole's comedy A Fertile Imagination, a lesbian couple attempts to have a child through artificial insemination. In Linda Griffiths' intimate character study The Darling Family, subtitled 'a duet for three', a couple grapples with the implications of an abortion. Deanne Taylor's musical fantasy, 2nd Nature, positions a woman's experience of her body and childbearing capacity as a force opposed to industrialized urban life. Despite the fact that all three of these plays deal with 'real' issues, it is not surprising that their authors have stayed away from traditional theatrical realism. In these three plays, the authors are attempting to make the audience look at 'nature' in a new way, and each is well aware that experiments with form will be the most important means of achieving a fresh perspective.

- ItemHell is other girls: belonging and identity in three plays by Joan MacLeod(University of Toronto Press, 2002) Scott, ShelleyA good number of books published around the turn of the millennium attempt to address the complexities of feminist identity for young women, suggesting that girls have a wider array of possible identities and empowering identifications than ever before. Yet we live in a time when there is a great deal of tension between the variety of role models available to girls, on the one hand, and the stultifying restrictions of a culture that still makes them unable to value and emulate any but the most conventional and conventionally beautiful of those models, on the other.
