Our History

Founded by Johnny Wideman in 2011, TOTB truly hit the stage when it produced Rebecca Steiner's Gadfly: Sam Steiner Dodges the Draft in partnership with Conrad Grebel University CollegeThe troupe spent a summer touring Fringe festivals and performing at churches. They slept on floors and ate a lot of peanut butter and jam sandwiches, but received great reviews for the piece which helped to establish the company as a trusted grass-roots, social justice theatre troupe. 

Since then, TOTB has gone on to partner with NGOs and communities across Canada to create several other original works, performing over two hundred shows in theatres, festivals, churches, universities, and prisons throughout P.E.I, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, The United States and The Netherlands .
