“Ms Pollock moves with ease within Canada’s established theatre scene and its so-called “fringe” element, and is an outstanding advocate of Canadian culture and promoter of Canadian talent. She is warm, communicative, and passionate about her art and the state of the Canadian Spirit. The power of her personality, the quality of her intellect and the force of her will have contributed in a profound way to the evolution of Canadian art and culture, and moved a country shy about its capacity to tell its own stories to one where Canadian stories now dominate the national theatrical scene and are respected, revered and produced around the world. ” C.D. Zimmerman, ed. Sharon Pollock: Collected Works.
"She does not write plays about romance or sexual escapades or happy domestic circumstances; constitutionally she is drawn to issues and ideas." Cynthia Zimmerman, editor “Sharon Pollock Collected Works” Playwrights Canada Press. 2005.
The playwright supports diversity in gender and race in all casting choices. Several of her plays include non-caucasian characters and those roles must be cast as such.
