"SPEAKABLE ACTS gathers together Herman Goodden’s six plays which have been professionally produced on Canadian and American stages. Included are the complete scripts of The Judgement of Slippery Jack, Suffering Fools (which Goodden also adapted in an award-winning script for CBC Radio), The Anniversary, Slippery or You Can’t Get There From Here, The Dark Ages and Nature Abhors a Vacuum.
The book is prefaced with a newly written 'Overture' in which Goodden gives some of the background behind the development and reception of each script. Also included are full cast lists and reproductions of the posters from the premiere productions of each play by Roger Baker, Alan Dayton, Kirtley Jarvis and Maridon Miller.
