Mapping English-Language Theatre in Quebec

Understanding the English-language theatrical landscape in Quebec through your stories


The English-Language Quebec Theatre Mapping Project presents first-person stories about relationships, connections, people, plays, venues, and performances told by members of the theatre community. This colletion of oral histories, testimonials, and memories allows us to gain a greater understanding of the history of Anglophone theatre in Quebec in the 20th century.
