Backstage

Top of page

The Théâtre du nouveau monde in Montréal stages Molière's play L'Avare. Out in front the house enjoys a smooth-running, professional performance. In the wings we find most of the problems associated with the legitimate stage in Canada today. The reason the prospects for live theatre remain bright in spite of these problems is seen as the film goes backstage to record the work and enthusiasm of people dedicated to their art. (With English subtitles.) (Also released under the title Québec Theatre.)

1953, 26 min
