Who we are:
“From Carolyn Gray’s The Elmwood Visitation to Dale Lakevolds’s affecting Stretching Hide, Theatre Projects Manitoba has in recent years given us some of the best, most energizing theatre in Winnipeg” —Kenton Smith, Uptown
We are the seed company:
“its production history reads like a who’s who of Winnipeg theatre.” —Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press
Committed to the cultivation of Manitoba plays and artists, in the past 23 years, we have staged more than 50 new Manitoba works. We develop the voices of our region, choosing stories that have a connection to our community, our history and culture and grow these new creations with passionate support.
Many of TPM’s Manitoba Premieres have been captured for future plantings: since 2005, our productions of Stretching Hide, The Elmwood Visitation, Encore, North Main Gothic and The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz have all become published plays!
We are the wildflower:
We also present and produce innovative Canadian plays that we are itching to see interpreted for Manitoba audiences. Artists like R M Vaughn, Daniel McIvor, and Linda Griffiths all push the boundaries of theatrical form and received their Manitoba premieres with TPM.
We’re on the wind:
As a theatre at large, we use a variety of venues—check the individual show information for performance locations.
