Wit's End is a Toronto-based comedic theatre company. It was founded in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2010 by artistic co-directors Elizabeth Johnston and Griffin McInnes.

The company has been on hiatus since 2013.


Wit's End Theatre produces new and class comedic plays. Often something is funny because it’s out of the ordinary: comedy points us to the bizarre, the unexpected and the extra ordinary.[1]

Production History

The company has presented to the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science[2] and in 2012 was company-in-residence with Toronto's Bishop Strachan School.[3]
