Silly Ghosts of Master Playwrights Past

ShawFest is ending with a roast of GBS, but you don't have to wait to have a laugh at some of the scribes from past festivals. As part of Winnipeg Jewish Theatre's TribeFest, Toronto improv troupe National Theatre of the World will be bring their show Impromptu Splendour to town January 25 to 29th.

Each night the troupe improvises the performance in the style of a Master Playwright. They'll be doing card-carrying members of the tribe for this run - past festival honourees Arthur Miller, Harold Pinter, David Mamet as well as that Woody Allen character. The praise they've gathered from audiences and critics is ridiculous. Check them out if you can.

And here's the program I made for TribeFest. Slowly, my skills, they grow.
