Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thundoy, March 1973 THE inNMIDGC HtRM.0 7 Theatre not inferior TORONTO (CP) The idea that. Canadian theatre is infe- rior to that of other countries is a myth but it still dogs the theatre world, says Leon Major, general director of the Toronto Arts Foundation. Mr. Major, former director of the Neptune Theatre in Hali- fax, who is also artislic direc- tor of the theatre company at the St. Lawrence Centre here, said in an interview that this reputation for inferiority is the biggest problem the theatre faces, apart from money. "I think we still have to live with that myth, although there is a wave of nationalism and young people haven't that attitude. "Our people are faced with DNlGHT THRU SATURDAY The The New Ima ge AT THE 733 13th ST. N.

Why aren't you in the United States if you are so good? "We have to crack through that." Sitting in his mod-decorated office a block Iron) the St. Lawrence Centre, Mr. Major spoke quietly but enthusiasti- cally about the prospects for lus repertory company and the theatre generally, LET'S THINK BIG "We have to crack through that inferiority myth and get rid of the small thoughts. We have to say to hell with them, let's go big. I don't mean ex pensive, but big in thought. We have to break through the iron bands entrapping us, and let our imagination go. "That's very hard to do when you've been conditioned not to." The theatre company of the St. Lawrence Centre, which is owned by the city of Toronto has a season of five plays this year, all classics except for Les Belles Soeurs by Quebec's Michel Tremblay, which opens April 3. I TURNOVER HIGH I Mr. Major came from Hall fax to" the St. Lawrence Centic in 1969 and took over as gen eral director in 1970. He said his plans for the future are simple "To make this place work." He has a resident compan; of 22 actors, with an a n n u a turnover of roughly 50 to per cent of his personnel. 'He' like to have 70 to 75 per cen of his repretory group return each year. But so far the compan does not have a summer sea son, nor does it tour outside o Toronto. It makes once-a-yea visits to the National Arts Cen tre in Ottawa. Mr. Major said the theatr in Canada needs more trainin grounds. One theatre schpo the National in Montreal, "jus doesn't serve us." "We need to remember tha art is universal. We've bee too timid and we have got t throw off (hat timidity. I don think money alone can solve all. You just have to plu away, and keep working at Mr. Major said Canada producing good writers for th Uieatre, but so far not specta ular ones. "The writers are of their own experience, which is absolutely right, and they are reflecting their own environ- ment, in Cape Breton or wher- ever. But it's a narrow view, and I think graudally they have to expand their view. "And our writers are not yet writing poetry for the theatre. That's what I'm asking poetry, not necessarily in verse form. But I think it will come."
