Dates of existence
NDWT, (Ne'er-Do-Well-Thespians), was organized in 1975 by Playwright James Reaney, Director Keith Turnbull, and a number of actors. This Toronto based company occupied the Bathurst Street Theatre for most of its existence. NDWT was an enterprise dedicated to producing original Canadian plays and eventually organized a native theatre group called Northern Delights under the direction of Jim Morris. Debt forced the NDWT to leave the Bathurst Street Theatre in 1980. Turnbull closed the company in 1982 with plans to reopen the following year, but NDWT did not resume operations.
