What You Want: Toronto

Just as we are sending our artists out into the city beyond our walls, we are also inviting new artists to join us inside them. Bring the Buzz: Inside TPM is an opportunity to expand upon TPM’s vision of audience dramaturgy that is the lynchpin of the Buzz Festival. This project provides meaningful and tangible support to the artistic community by providing theatre space to emerging and independent artists to develop their art through the engagement of TPM’s core audience.

In 2010, Templeton wrote the smash-hit What You Want, a goodbye letter to Vancouver. In 2011, he and his characters moved to Toronto. Now he’s going to tell the almost true story of what he found when he got here, weaving a one-man show through the stories of four characters. With special themed events and talk back sessions.
