It was during these brief and often tense moments that Taylor and Younger would pause to right the wrongs of the artistic world quickly developing a deep respect for each other. Between them they share over 20 years of performance experience in musicals and live theatre, both coming from a background of working professionally from a young age. With the wealth of knowledge between them a fresh eye and a deep desire to go against the status-quo Taylor and Younger are a pair that is not afraid to take risks. “We put on new work, we are willing to be controversial, we are gritty and expressive and artists to our core,”

Nominated for the Canadian Comedy Award and multiple Dora Awards (including for Outstanding New Musical) and still credited as the most successful production in Toronto Fringe history.
