Modern Theatre in Context: A Critical Timeline

previous entry 1964 next entry

Françoise Graton, Georges Groulx, and Gilles Pelletier found la Nouvelle Compagnie Théâtrale in Montreal, specializing early on in classics from French drama. Just one year later, in 1965 a Centre d'Essai des Auteurs Dramatiques is also founded in Montreal to promote French-language playwriting in Quebec and increase international awareness of Quebec theatre. Their influence causes la Nouvelle Compagnie Théâtrale to produce Marcel Dubé's Un Simple Soldat in 1969, following which they expand their mandate to include new Quebec plays.
