TPM was created in 1990 when founding Artistic Director Harry Rintoul and members of the Winnipeg theatre community wanted a theatre that would take the necessary risks to put their plays on the stage. With close ties to the Manitoba Association of Playwrights (MAP) and a passionate faith in this region’s playwrights, TPM was established as the only professional company dedicated to producing the works of Manitoba playwrights. Over the past 25 years, we have produced over 50 new Manitoba plays.
Our vision of theatre is intimate, provocative, and artistically driven: shaped by a strong belief that playwrights and plays are the heart of Canadian theatre. Our goal is to build a cultural narrative that speaks to our community and reflects our shared experiences.
