Welcome to our 2016/17 Season
We’re delighted to share with you three bold works by intrepid Canadian voices. Join us to experience unflinching stories that are artistically stunning and NOW.
This fall TPM’s heads out on to the road, stretching our Manitoba routes with a rural presentation of Sick + Twisted’s Sargent & Victor & Me by Debbie Patterson, including a limited Winnipeg run.
When the nights get longer and the snow begins to fly we will light a fire with Beautiful Man, Erin Shield’s sexy, no-holds-barred response to binge-worthy series like Game of Thrones and True Detective.
And in the dead of winter TPM presents one of the most arresting contemporary Canadian solo shows– Huff by Cliff Cardinal, a Native Earth Performing Arts production.
The season will be sprinkled with salons as well. This year, the University representatives from both University of Winnipeg and University of Manitoba come together to create a new production, through a highly scientific, laboratory-inspired creative process. Join us to see this show unfold and to experience performances and readings inspired by collaborating artists and our 2016/17 productions.
It’s a season of exciting partnerships, and we look forward to welcoming new companies and communities into the TPM fold. TPM continues its commitment to Make/Shift Theatre, the company in residence, who will transport audiences through time….as they continue to tinker away at their time machine.
We’re writing our own map down highways less traveled and we look forward to sharing the roadtrip with you.

“probably the most vital social conversation happening in our city, if not the entire country.”
– The Uniter’s Thomas Pashko on Reservations
It was a three-year journey to bringing Reservations to the stage and along with our gratitude for such a passionate artistic team, we have many people to thank for this amazing experience.
We could not have done it without the incredible support of our sponsors, Assiniboine Credit Union, Investors Group, Pitblado Law, Relish Design, Winnipeg Free Press, The Gail Asper Family Foundation, Richardson Foundation, W.H. & S.E. Loewen Foundation, Thomas Sill Foundation and Winnipeg Foundations. Hugs and hearts also to our season funders and our amazing individual donors, as well as Playwright’s Workshop Montreal and the Manitoba Association of Playwrights, who both supported the development.
We send a special shout-out to our high school audiences and those fantastic students who experienced Reservations with attentiveness and consideration – you blew us away! And finally, the biggest thank you goes to YOU, our dear audience! Your consistent hunger for exciting and intelligent theatre is the proverbial wind beneath our wings. Our endless gratitude goes out to you!
TPM’s regular season of plays may be over, but stay tuned – we’ll be announcing our upcoming season in the coming weeks!
