Entrances and Exits – A Live-Streamed Improvised Farce
Update: This production will be Postponed Until Further Notice due to new Government restrictions on live streaming.
Due to the latest extension of Ontario’s Emergency Stay-At-Home Order, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Entrances and Exits until further notice. An earlier version of Ontario’s emergency legislation allowed concert venues, theatres and cinemas to open “for the purposes of rehearsing or performing a recorded or broadcasted concert, artistic event or theatrical performance” however the new emergency orders have revoked the ability to live stream altogether, which directly impacts our production.
As a result we will not be able to move forward with Entrances and Exits at Streetcar Crowsnest until the state of emergency is lifted but we hope you will join us again when that time comes!
“Some of the best actors and improvisers in the city make this made-up two-act farce look easy.”

This Canadian Comedy Award nominated show takes its inspiration from classic farces you already love. You are invited to follow LIVE from home as a cast of incredible improvisers try to salvage a party gone awry over the course of 60 minutes.
“This has everything a good improv show ought to have: a fabulous cast and a great concept…I left the theatre with an itch to return, just to see what else this cast could do and I think that’s the highest compliment I can think to give to any show.”

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 have adapted this joyful, unscripted comedy from stage to screen for an innovative digital performance, that will per performed and broadcasted live to audiences at home in the future.
