MaximMazumdar

Our annual play competition is conducted in memory of actor/playwright Maxim Mazumdar (1953-1988.)  Mr. Mazumdar’s many contributions to the early growth of the Alleyway were artistically invaluable, and instrumental in shaping a continuing relationship with Canadian theatre. It was at Alleyway Theatre in March, 1988 that Mr. Mazumdar gave his last performance in the premiere of his original musical, LUPERCAL.
