Title
Establishing Contact Between Two Cultures: Marianne Ackerman at the Montreal Gazette, 1983-1987
Abstract
The author maintains that Ackerman tried to bridge the gap between Montreal’s French and English theatre communities in the 1980s through her reviews in the Gazette by not only reporting on both but also by representing them to each other. One of Ackerman’s criticisms of Montreal anglophone theatre was that it failed to speak for its constituency. In a 1985 article, Ackerman wrote: “Drama, more than any other art form, should thrive in a community that has undergone a serious trauma.”
