About the Book
The Long & Short of It, an anthology of short plays by writers from the Prairie Theatre Exchange Playwrights Unit, conjures up a landscape filled with aspiring filmmakers, bickering couples, junior chess players, street corner memoirists, and mendacious pie bakers, amongst others. A compendium of Manitoba comedy, drama, and everything in between, The Long & Short of It provides a showcase for some of the province’s finest theatre writers. This sampler of epigrammatic plays was curated by Brian Drader in celebration of Prairie Theatre Exchange, the Carol Shields Festival of New Works, and PTE’s esteemed Artistic Director, Bob Metcalfe.
