Performance Notes

× This summer Vancouver TheatreSports™ (VTS) takes an affectionate and comedic look at what makes Vancouver so unique. Avocado Toast – Vancouver Grown, Free-Range Comedy pokes fun at YVR and its stereotypes.

Vancouver is known internationally for its spectacular beauty, friendly citizens and vibrant multi-cultural milieu. Beneath the glossy surface lies a complicated and eccentric city ripe for parody. In a series of vignettes VTS’s quick-witted improvisers lampoon such local stereotypes as our obsession with fitness (Grouse Grind and yoga anyone?), quirky neighbourhoods (The Drive, Main St., Kits, Gastown), and foodie scene (coffee culture, craft breweries/distilleries, avocado toast) that have earned Vancouver its ‘Lotus Land’ nickname. Our ‘wet coast’ winters, burgeoning bike lanes, ‘affordable’ housing and hipsters are only a few more entertaining and endless comedic inspirations. As in all VTS shows, the plot, characters and action are co-developed with the audience - utilizing their suggestions to drive the action and create on-the-spot, unscripted, theatrically-infused comedy.
