Donate to The Howland Company

By donating to The Howland Company, you help us in so many ways. Your support allows us to continue the growth of our projects in development*; it helps us run The Reading Group, our monthly cold-reading of a play with the community, free of charge; it helps us continue to offer affordable training opportunities for the community with The Training Group; and it is integral to moving forward with our most ambitious season to date, featuring two large-scale productions consisting primarily of Toronto’s exciting emerging artists.

*Projects currently in development:

  • A new translation and adaptation of Ödön von Horváth’s Casimir and Caroline, by Holger Syme
  • take rimbaud, a new performance text by Toronto playwright Susanna Fournier.

We are thrilled to announce that we will be producing the Toronto Premiere of Simon Stephens’ PUNK ROCK in the Spring of 2018 at Crow’s Theatre, launching the beginning of our exciting and ambitious 2018 Season. We are honoured to follow it with another exciting Toronto Premiere in the Fall of 2018 to be announced soon!

Any donation amount would be a huge help towards securing our theatrical rights, rental costs, and creative fees.

About the Howland Company

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.

Monthly, The Howland Company hosts an open event called The Reading Group, where artists are encouraged to connect with fellow members of the Toronto theatre community and discover new plays together.

Bi-Annually, The Howland Company hosts a class called The Training Group: an opportunity for actors, both emerging and established, to explore seminal plays in an intimate training group setting guided by one of Toronto’s leading theatre artists.
