Title
La Poudrière Reincarnated: 25 Years of International Theatre in Montreal
Abstract
Montreal's Théâtre La Poudrière was founded by the author in 1957 as a multicultural, multi-lingual theatre, located in a former powder magazine built in 1822 on St. Helen's Island. The 150-seat theatre presented a wide array of theatre in French, English, Spanish and German, from 1957 until 1982. Among the works presented at the theatre were Ogden Nash's The Rainmaker, the plays of Alan Ayckbourn and Noel Coward, and light repertory from around the world. Among the actors who worked at the theatre were Eric Donkin, Ted Follows, Walter Massey, Denise Pelletier, Gilles Pelletier and Louise Marleau.
