About Entrances & Exits (An Improvised Farce)
Did you hear that? I think it came from the bedroom…
In a new unscripted format, seven of Toronto’s best actors and improvisers piece together a 60 minute improvised play based on the traditional farces that we love like The Norman Conquests and Noises Off.
The Format: Act 1 and Act 2 take place over the same window of time in adjoining rooms of the same house with a variety of (you guessed it) entrances and exits.
Entrances and Exits first premiered in 2018 at the Toronto Fringe Festival, where it became an instant sold-out hit, winning “Best of Fringe”. The show was subsequently remounted in 2019 at Bad Dog Theatre and was invited to Toronto’s Sketch Fest, Canada’s premiere comedy showcase, before garnering a Canadian Comedy Award nomination.
…But a lot has changed since 2018.
Now, as the theatres remain closed and social distancing lockdowns remain in effect, we are adapting this joyful, unscripted comedy from stage to screen for an innovative digital performance, broadcast live from the Guloien Theatre at Streetcar Crowsnest .
