Almost 50 members of the Toronto theatre community and its patrons gathered outside the doors of Soulpepper's theatre on Wednesday evening for a silent protest in support of the actresses accusing former artistic director Albert Schultz of sexual misconduct.

Kat Lanteigne, an organizer of the demonstration, said the protest at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts was meant to send a message to the women involved in the civil lawsuits.

None of the claims has been proven in court.
