Under the artistic direction of founder Andraea Sartison we are a non-profit company dedicated to producing new work that is interdisciplinary and collaboratively created.

One Trunk Theatre lives in Winnipeg and was formed in 2009. It has since presented seven new plays, including I Dream of Diesel (Theatre Projects Manitoba), Hamlet as Told on the Streets and the upcoming 204FM radio series and Mission Potluck.

Through our process and plays we seek to find the root of where all art forms begin and branch out to create new, innovative performances. Each production integrates a new combination of media into our theatre process be it ballet, rap, hip hop dance, silent movie or graphic novel.

We strive to continually push the boundaries of what theatre can be and find innovative ways to create, educate and communicate.
