Independents the Future of Canadian Theatre?

The Canadian Stage Company, which has a stated aim to create and produce the best in Canadian theatre, will not produce any Canadian work on its mainstage next season, industry sources say.” – From the Toronto Star.

Yet another questionable decision by “Canada’s largest not-for-profit contemporary theatre company”. Not only is there no indication of any Canadian plays being produced next season, but they fired the staffer responsible for new play development. And their director of audience development and education. Looks like someone else is going to have to write new plays and develop and educate new audiences in this country, I guess. Anyone for keeping it real?
