Compulsive Acts explores the films, plays, and personality of prolific playwright, novelist, film maker, and poet Sky Gilbert through the eyes of a handful of the people who have observed his work closely over the past two decades -- as audience members and arts workers. Actors, academics, performance artists, journalists, film makers, playwrights, poets and his partner of many years tackle his immense output with a queer eye for the intricacies of a unique and astute aesthetic vision -- a vision that has placed him securely within Canadian Theatre history as an iconic and consistently provocative dramatic force to be reckoned with.

Sky Gilbert is a playwright, director, professor, and drag queen extraordinaire. He was co-founder and artistic director of Torontos Buddies in Bad Times Theatre for 17 years.


There are many more plays and many more reviews that this slim volume cannot hope to encounter. What will [Gilbert] come up with next in his ongoing compulsion to say what he thinks about everything under the queer explosive sun? ? David Bateman
