Resident Playwrights, EmCee & Companies

TPM is a national institution that is a voice of and for Canadian culture. We are home to a repertoire of work that is inclusive, eclectic and representative of our city. We are creating a home for an audience that is open, heterogeneous, and drawn to risk. We do work that we devise and work that we collaborate on. We are as interested in developing audiences, artists, and companies as we are in developing plays. We are an active part of our community.
