Play Unscripted

Directed by Dan O Connor, featuring an international ensemble

With Play UnScripted, the company starts with audience suggestions and improvises a contemporary play from scratch with no pre-set genre, no guidelines, and no safety net. Inspired by modern playwrights like Christopher Durang, Rajiv Joseph, Tracy Letts, Yasmina Reza and Sarah Ruhl, Play UnScripted presents a play built on pure imagination where every performance is completely unique – and will never be seen again.

This show is an International TheatreSports Festival performance:

The Improv World is coming to VTS from October 14 – 20 when we will be playing host to the International TheatreSports Institute (iTi) Conference and Festival. The iTi is the largest improv network in the world. Every two years they convene a conference and improv festival that brings together improvisers from around the globe. The theme of this year’s festival is ImproV Ecology in recognition of how the improv art form has evolved around the world to reflect the influences it receives from different cultural terroirs. The Festival showcases improv formats created by iTi founder Keith Johnstone (e.g. Theatresports™, Gorilla Theatre™, Maestro Impro™ and The Life Game™), along with signature performances by some of the visiting international delegates and companies. All shows will take place on Granville Island. In addition to our own theatre, The Improv Centre, we will also be performing at the Waterfront Theatre and at the Nest Studio Theatre – all three venues are only a short walk apart from each other.
