The Dramatic Legacy of Dorothy Davis & Violet Walters by Muriel Gold

Dramatic

It was 1933 in the midst of the Great Depression. Montrealers, like their counterparts in other countries, were inundated with financial burdens. Uppermost in most parents’ minds was the task of supporting their families. Dance lessons, music lessons, drama lessons were considered in many quarters as “frills.” This pervasive mood did not daunt two young women, Dorothy Davis and Violet Walters, from initiating their mission. Instead, it spurred them on. Difficult times , they believed, were all the more reason to inspire children through the love of the arts, in this case drama and theatre Muriel Gold tells the story of these two dynamic women through innumerable anecdotes.
