This week it’s been difficult to avoid talk about the Lannisters, Starks, and Targaryens. Vancouver TheatreSports is jumping into the pop culture battle with their own unique show Throne and Games – The Last Laugh.
A satirical parody, loosely based on the wildly popular HBO’s TV series of a similar name. This instalment marks the last ‘season’ in VTS’ comedy trilogy, which began in 2015 with Throne and Games – Laughter is Coming and continued with Throne and Games – A Chance of Snow in 2016.
Starting April 26th, Throne and Games – The Last Laugh will feature some familiar characters along with a myriad of unexpected plot twists as suggested by the audience. Because of this key element, no two performances can be the same. As in its TV inspiration, the audience has no idea what to expect next…and neither do the VTS master improvisers.
With a new scenario mapped out by popular ensemble members Graeme Duffy and Denise Jones, a murderous cast of characters, an innovative set by Mo Sherwood and more plot twists than the original TV show, this all-new VTS production comes with a severe hilarity warning: attendance could lead to sore sides from laughing.
Vancouver TheatreSports’ Throne and Games – The Last Laugh runs at The Improv Centre on Granville Island every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30pm from Friday, April 26 to Saturday, June 15, 2019. Ticket prices start at $10.75 and are on sale now at www.vtsl.com.
Come see for yourself which of the characters will have the last laugh and sit triumphant on the Iron Throne?
