In a glowing review of Karen Hines' new play, Drama - currently running as part of the Alberta Theatre Projects' playRites Festival - the Calgary Herald considers the mixture of satire, criticism, melodrama and absurdity that makes the work so engrossing.

Book editions of Drama are now available from Coach House:

'We go from chic to cheek, from satire to melodrama, from ant farms to the meaning of babies, from soul of the mind to spirit in the veins, from Nietzsche and David Mamet to Desperate Housewives, as we are moved by playwright Hines through a very clever, cautionary play-with-epilogue about becoming the medium for what we watch on television and being what we consume.

' ... a magnificent play.'
