Always entertaining, this event is a fundraiser for Presentation House Theatre, one of the North Shore’s cultural icons.
Tickets are $75 per person and include: Food and Drink, the Show and Silent and Live Auctions.
The event starts at 7:30pm.
What is The Life Game?
The Life Game, as developed by Keith Johnstone (www.keithjohnstone.com), is based on improvised storytelling. It is a staged biography of a Guest’s life as seen through their eyes, and told through the improvisational acting skills of the actors. The show takes the bare bones of a Guest’s life story, and then transforms that information, then and there, into a magical piece of theatre.
“What makes The Life Game so appealing is the clear sense that its performers are there not to show off their obvious talents but to provide a frame for others. It is as selfless-seeming a slice of show business as I have ever witnessed.” -New York Magazine
How Does The Life Game work?
Material is taken from whatever that evening’s Guest reveals about his or her life. An ensemble of five Improvisers and one Director can interrupt the conversation so the cast can act out scenes from the subject’s life; scenes that sometimes whirl off into fantasies, yet are always grounded in the truth of everyday life. The spectacle of someone discovering and remembering feelings from their past makes for electrifying theatre.
