About Us

Our Mandate:

The Howland Company is a Toronto-based theatre ensemble. Our curiosity is in stories that impact our generation. Through our productions, training opportunities and free community play reading group, we aim to connect and nurture a community that will be ready to take on tomorrow’s challenges.


With recognition from both Canadian Stage and the Soulpepper Theatre Company, The Howland Company is best known for their 2014 “Best of Toronto Fringe” hit and three-time sold-out production of 52 Pick-Up. Since establishing themselves as an independent theatre ensemble in 2013, the company has developed and produced numerous projects including a new adaptation of Ödön von Horváth’s Casimir and Caroline, Susanna Fournier’s new performance text take rimbaud, an innovative and intimate production of The Glass Menagerie, as well as a sharp and disturbing award-winning “Patron’s Pick” production of Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons at the 2017 Toronto Fringe.

2018 will be their most ambitious year to date, kicking off with the Toronto Premiere of PUNK ROCK by Simon Stephens in the Spring of 2018, followed by the Toronto Premiere of 2017 Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama – Sarah DeLappe’s THE WOLVES in the Fall of 2018.
