Throne and Games - The Last Laugh Saturday April 27 2019 at 7:30 PM

The Improv Centre
× A lonely Queen sits atop the Iron Throne, but her kingdom is under threat from all sides. The final fight between the Lannisters, Starks and Targaryans is about to go down and everyone will probably die - die laughing that is. Throne and Games – The Last Laugh is the final installment in VTS’ parody trilogy that started in 2015.

Loosely based on HBO’s popular TV series, this improv laugh-letting features myriad unexpected plot twists - all suggested by the audience. No two performances can ever be the same because of this key element. Like its TV inspiration, the audience has no idea what to expect next, and, neither do the cast. VTS improvisers are master actors – creating the plot line, developing characters and dialogue all on the spot based on audience involvement and suggestions. It’s this unpredictability that adds to the comedy of every performance. Which of the characters will have the last laugh? Who knows? You’ll have to come and see for yourself to find out.

We cannot accommodate younger children, toddlers or infants.
