The People's Republic of Improv

ON NOW: Downton Uppity

April 5, 12, 19 and 26 at 8pm

Your favourite theatre company is back every Friday in April with their witty comedy, touching drama and period costumes that will make you swoon. Did I mention it's all made up on the spot?

People's Republic of Improv presents DOWNTON UPPITY, an improvised Upstairs, Downstairs Saga. Inspired by the hit historical dramas Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs, the actors will bring you suppressed British emotion, over-reactive letter reading and scandalous crossover between aristocrats and their household staff. The story continues every Friday in April. Buy a season pass for all 4 Fridays for $35 or individual tickets starting from $13. It's a steal... just don't steal our fancy candelabras, you rogue!
