Saskatoon’s Persephone Theatre was founded in 1974 by the actors Janet and Susan Wright and director Brian Richmond, who was to become the theatre’s first artistic director. It was by design that its founders named this theatre in the heart of the Saskatchewan prairies “Persephone”, for she was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, the goddess of fertility and the fruitful earth, with a fondness for things agricultural. A theatre so named would be capable of growth and change, like the changing seasons of Saskatchewan.
