Watch out Vancouver as we light a fuse to Vancouver’s comedy scene – shattering stereotypes and sparking a lot of laughs. Firecracker! features an all-star cast of female improvisers. It’s a different improv experience from mixed-gender casts – women take more risks and play on the edge more when they play with only other women.
Through the medium of improv comedy, Firecracker! will explore what it means to be a woman in Vancouver. Themes such as dating and romance, career and work/life balance, female friendships and body image will all be examined through the audience suggestions motivating the improvisers’ wicked wit. The first three shows will honour a special female guest whose stories of their life, work and achievements will inspire the performance. We are delighted to have the following guests join us for these inaugural shows.
Subsequent performances may not always include special guest. However, all will celebrate the fun and foibles of female life in the early 21st Century Vancouver. As in all VTSL productions, audience suggestions about the show’s theme will play an integral role in determining and driving the improvised action.The resulting comedy is inventive, unpredictable and uproarious.
