Richard Plant lives on a farm west of Lakefield and is active in the area’s theatre, music, curling and cycling communities. He is a board member at 4th line Theatre and has acted there as well as in productions by various other theatres around Peterborough. He is Professor Emeritus of Queen’s University and the University of Toronto where his love for Canadian literature joined with his love for theatre in a career as a scholarly specialist in Canadian drama. He has published widely and has held senior offices in a range of scholarly organizations. An inveterate theatre-goer, one of his most cherished moments was the late George Luscombe’s brilliant production of Ain’t Lookin’, adapted from John Craig’s Chappie and Me by George and Craig himself.
