Sin City the Live Improvised Serial
What is the show?
SIN CITY is a live improvised comedy show performed in Victoria, B.C. Every week the same cast of characters move the story forward in hilarious and unexpected ways, as they respond to live direction. Funny, poignant, thrilling unscripted theatre - this format takes improv to a whole new level. Created and directed by Ian Ferguson and Kirsten Van Ritzen, produced by Broad Theatrics.
Season Four: KINGDOM OF THRONES
The fourth incredible season of SIN CITY: KINGDOM OF THRONES has closed. Set in a Medieval Castle in the fictional European principality of Thronavia, circa 1342. Populated by peasants and ruled by royalty, it was an epic tale that evoked the fairytale world of Once Upon a Time, the dangerous intrigue of Game of Thrones and the hilarious spontaneity of Whose Line is it Anyway?
As is our custom, the troupe will take a break then return for Season 5 with a brand new setting and cast of characters! And a new story will begin...
