Two of my most successful plays were commissioned by YPT: Anne and The Secret Garden went on to have multiple productions across Canada. A third, Merlin, while not as critically acclaimed here in Toronto, also did well for the theatre and has been produced from sea to shining sea (Vancouver to Halifax). So needless to say I feel honored and grateful to have been part of the YPT family. But in many ways what I cherish most was bringing my two nieces to so many wonderful productions . They’re both grown now, but from time to time they bring up those nights when they had their first taste of the magic of live theatre. I think it is fair to say no company in Toronto is more responsible for the ongoing success of the performing arts in this city because down on Front Street new generations of theatre goers and artists were introduced to that magic – Paul Ledoux, Playwright.
