Winner of the Ann Saddlemyer Book Prize, as awarded by the Association for Canadian Theatre Research. In this first biography of Dora Mavor Moore, Paula Sperdakos examines the life and career of a key figure in the development of the theatre in Canada. This extraordinary woman is best remembered for her work with the New Play Society. But when Dora founded the NPS in 1946, she was already close to 60 years old, and she had been working tirelessly as actress, director, producer, and teacher, for almost 40 years. The story of her remarkable achievements will appeal to anyone with an interest in the arts in Canada.
