Our Leaving Ladies: Canadian Actresses Starring on World Stages from the 1840s to 1940s

A new exhibit celebrating Canadian women of the stage whose talent was recognized in theatres around the world.

Canadians like Beatrice Lillie, Margaret Anglin, May Irwin and Julia Arthur were the toast of Broadway and London’s West End theatres.

But how did these women from Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton and Cobourg Ontario find stardom? The exhibit explores their childhoods, private lives, careers and celebrity.

Complementing items from Theatre Museum Canada’s own collections, the exhibit features rarely seen images found in museum and library collections around the world and discovered by  Dr. Cecilia  Morgan  while researching a SSHRC-funded project, English-Canadian Actresses on Transnational and Imperial Stages.

IMAGE:Julia Arthur as Juliet (1899), Courtesy of Library of Congress Theatrical poster collection.
