Synopsis: In this book, accomplished theatre professional Deborah Hurford turns her talents to the written form as she chronicles the development of the celebrated production Running Through The Devil's Club and its tour through prisons, women's centres and communities throughout Western Canada. This intensely personal chronicle is supported by transcripts of discussions with two other well-known directors who have created hit shows using popular theatre: Eileen Sproule, One Morning I Realized I Was Licking the Kitchen Floor: A Comic Look at Depression.
The foreword by Jan Selman puts the play into perspective with a brief discussion of the history of popular theatre in both the Canadian and global context.
Includes the complete original playscript.
