About the Book
A Map of the Senses is a celebration of twenty years of playwriting in Manitoba. With plays from twelve members of MAP (the Manitoba Association of Playwrights) which has just turned twenty, this collection represents a variety of productions from not only the mainstream theatre and the perennially exciting Fringe Festival, but also from independent productions. Contributors include Rick Chafe (Zac and Speth), William Harrar (Inquest), Maureen Hunter (Footprints on the Moon), Bruce McManus (Calenture), Ross McMillan (Washing Spider Out), Elise Moore (Live With It), Yvette Nolan (Blade), Deborah O’Neil (Worm Moon), Harry Rintoul (Between Then and Now), Ian Ross (Heart of a Distant Tribe), Alf Silver (Thimblerig) and Dennis Trochim (Better Looking Boys).
