Biography

WHO ARE WE?

Theatre Howl is an independent Theatre Company based in Saskatoon, SK founded in 2012 to focus on independent theatre in and from Saskatchewan.

We seek to create innovative, original and exciting work by Saskatchewan artists; and to showcase our original works and unique story telling to the rest of the country through tours of our productions.

Theatre Howl has been creating work since 2013 with its first show, Matchstick, touring The Fringe Circuit that summer. Matchstick was then produced by Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon (May 2015) and GCTC in Ottawa (January 2016). Theatre Howl’s production won The Best in Fest Award for Outstanding Original Work (Ottawa Fringe 2013), and Persephone’s production was nominated for three SATAwards including Outstanding Production. In October 2013 Theatre Howl produced Trick-or-Treat which was three shows in one night in found spaces; Robots Eating Humans in a house, Dead Air in a garage, and Scary Stories in a park. In 2014 Aiden Flynn Lost His Brother So He Makes Another and Dr. Frightful Presents: Dear Air (a co-pro with Neverending Highway) toured the Fringe Circuit; both of which were presented again in Saskatoon in Live Five’s 12th season. In 2015 Theatre Howl produced Aiden Flynn Lost His Brother... at four festivals, Look//See, a horror play about a group of young women haunted by their reflections at Saskatoon Fringe, and The Wild Dog Waits On The Concrete Path, a fish out of water story about a principal of a school in a cage and the dog that broke through the fence, at Vancouver Fringe. Along with continued work on existing projects Theatre Howl is working on putting together a production of a new play, She’s Probably From The Lake, a horror play about a haunting in a cabin in the woods that turns into a heart-warming story of an unlikely friendship.
