Theatre Projects Manitoba Season & Theatre Salon

Theatre Projects Manitoba (TPM) is thrilled to announce the Prairie premieres of two incredible plays from Quebec and to launch our Theatre Salon, where Manitoba artists and audiences can explore Quebec theatre in both official languages!

TPM’s Theatre Salon will be a monthly theatre mash up featuring performances inspired by theatre in translation and exploring Fréchette and de la Chenelière’s respective oeuvres.  Our colleagues at Le Théâtre Vice Versa Theatre (TVVT) will present readings of John and Beatrice and Bashir Lazhar in French.  We invite you to encounter the plays in their original language. 
The monthly salons will feature music and performances from la belle province.

The season opens with an imaginative and subversive comedy written by Governor General and Siminovitch award winning playwright, Carole Fréchette and translated by John Murrell. Directed by TPM Artistic Director Ardith Boxall the production features Kevin Klassen and Tracy Penner as the couple.
