Willful Actsis an expanded and updated collection of Margaret Hollingsworth's best-known and most popular plays, including The Apple in the Eye, Everloving, Diving, Islands, and War Babies(nominated for a Governor General's Award); along with her latest play, Commonwealth Games.

Hollingsworth's earlier work showcases recurring women's issues and themes ( Islandswas among the first plays to put lesbian characters front and centre on the Canadian stage).
