The Howland Company is an independent Toronto theatre ensemble, best known for their 2014 “Best of Toronto Fringe” hit and three-time sold-out production of 52 Pick-Up. Since establishing themselves 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. Having kicked off with the Toronto Premiere of PUNK ROCK by Simon Stephens this Spring, which was recently honoured with two Dora Mavor Moore Award Nominations (Outstanding Ensemble & Outstanding Costume Design), the season will close with another exciting Toronto Premiere of Sarah DeLappe’s Pulitzer-nominated play THE WOLVES, a Howland Company and Crow’s Theatre production in the Fall of 2018.
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.

Everyone is RAVING About!
What is farce? An exaggerated and improbable series of events that serve solely for entertainment. Now take that, add a few suggestions from the audience, and watch what unfolds. In a new unscripted format, seven of Toronto’s best actors and improvisers piece together a 60 minute improvised play based on the traditional farces we love like The Norman Conquests and Noises Off.
The Format: Act 1 and Act 2 take place over the same window of time in adjoining rooms of one house with a variety of (you guessed it) entrances and exits.
Featuring special guests… Colin Mochrie and Linda Kash!
When: August 22nd at 9pm & August 23rd at 7pm
Where: Toronto Centre for the Arts
