REANEY, James. Wacousta! [Front cover adds: "A melodrama in three acts, with a description of its development in workshops"]. Toronto and Victoria : Press Porcepic Limited, (1979). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (5),6-,(1). 8vo, printed red card covers with white lettered purple title block to front cover, white lettering to front and spine. James Crerar Reaney, OC, FRSC (b. September 1, 1926, Easthope, Ontario – d. June 11, 2008, London, Ontario). "'Wacousta!' is a tale of adventure, intrigue, mystery and love set in 1763 at the British forts of Detroit and Michilimackinac. The story was first told by Major John Richardson in a novel written in 1832. Within two years it had become an internationalily famous romance, whose appeal has lasted down to the present day. This nineteenth-century melodrama thrilled audiences with accounts of sieges, family feuds, romantic love and , most of all -- revenge. Now James Reaney has taken this thrilling romance and reworked it with his own inimitable magic. Working with groups in London and Timmins for over a year, Reaney shaped the story into a contemporary drama, filled with colour, adventure, comedy and the exaggerated passions of melodrama. Polished into dramatic form by intensive work with the NDWT Company, 'Wacousta!' went on tour to enthusiastic audiences." - from rear.Faint spinecreasing, else very good. 15.00
