The New Play Society, established by Dora Mavor Moore in 1946, was a professional, non-profit theatre company, which produced original and other works (seventy-two productions in total). One of its most enduring efforts was the annual review 'Spring thaw,' which Moore's son, Mavor Moore, took charge of in the 1950s. The society was also responsible for a theatre school in Toronto.
