Temporary Theatre Company is based in St. John's, Newfoundland and is committed to producing new work in compelling ways through honesty, intimacy, and risk-taking.  We believe that everyone has a story, and that it is our job as theatre artists to inspire change by telling those stories.   Theatre can illuminate and clarify.  It can lift, hold, and make peace.  It can scream and claw and fight.  And it can show us that the ordinary can be beautiful and full of poetry.  It is an essential part of the human experience.  Temporary Theatre Company was founded in 2014 by Kevin Woolridge, and is a proud member of the Association of Professional Theatre of Newfoundland and Labrador (APTNL).
