"Volume II" contains six plays. The English-language plays are: "Novena," by Marie-Beath Badian, a play about a detached and estranged daughter's return home to say a Novena for her father who is sick in the Philippines; "The Clothesline," by Donna Caruso, a fun and loving narration about three generations of Canadian women and their experiences far from the land of their birth; "Spring Arrival," by Marjorie Chan, introduces us to an unforgettable Hong Kong immigrant who cheers up the other patients in her hospital ward with stories about the cultural misunderstandings of her first days in Toronto; "The Gift," by Marty Chan, a touching story behind the desperate attempt of a mother, who fled China during the Great Cultural Revolution, to pass down the family's dumpling recipe to her daughter; "Say Ginger Ale," by Marcia Johnson, a play in which a Jamaican Canadian woman returns to her homeland and finds herself forced to rediscover the value of what she has left behind and confirm fundamental truths about immigrant life; "One Officer's Experiences," by Arthur J. Vaughan, the compassionate and humorous memoir of an immigration officer stationed at Halifax's Ocean terminal who greeted the arrival of immigrants for twenty years spanning the great post-war influx.
