This is a first ever! Improv on the Gabriola Theatre Festival mainstage!

Improv has the potential to inspire, engage, and be absolutely unforgettable. Don’t miss it!

“… poetic, lyrical, haunting, frightening … created a dystopian world so possible as to be chilling in its verisimilitude. The moody and atmospheric improvised design was the ᴀnal crowning touch—costumes, props, lighting, and sound—perfection.” —Janis Lacouvée

In a dystopian future, Paper Street’s improvisers struggle with gender politics and identity—and to stay alive. Inspired by the works of Margaret Atwood, this show captures her stark prose, futuristic vision, and the dark—often humorous—undercurrent that runs through her work. If you’ve ever loved a book by Atwood, this is show you cannot miss.
