Main Description
A cultural giant, Mavor Moore has had a hand in some of the greatest achievements in building Canada's theatrical identity, and yet he is relatively unkown to the Canadian theatre community. The enigmatic, obscured figure behind many of the most important moments in building Canada's theatrical and cultural landscape has largely been ignored by history.
Main Description
An astounding account of a cultural giant who's been lost to history.
