Last year, we announced that we wanted to create a critical history of theatre in Malta and we intended to start from the post-war period up until the end of the 20th century, and possibly the beginning of the present century. During 2018, a number of discussions were held with the University of Malta, and a way forward was established to commission a Phd that would focus on the research of theatre history.
Much remains to be done in 2019, especially by way of interviews and transcriptions of elderly actors and directors whose memory as well as life’s work risks being lost unless properly archived and documented through well devised systematic efforts to claim and classify each and every fragment of information accordingly. However documentation is not enough. We want to analyze it and discuss who were our greats, why they were great and what milestones happened when.
