Manitoba Theatre for Young People founder dismissed
For 30 years, Leslee Silverman's name was synonymous with the Manitoba Theatre for Young People. The founder and artistic director dedicated her career to developing MTYP and building it's permanent home at the Forks. But yesterday, the theatre's board relieved Silverman of her duties, in a move that caught her completely off guard. Marcy Markusa interviews Gloria Koop, the president of the board of MTYP ... and then James Durham, an actor and playwright with a long-standing relationship to the theatre.
