A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… there’s still no affordable housing in Lotus Land of the West, tourists continue to flock to the small island in False Creek, the Evil Emperor plots his return and the improvisers strike back. Episode X.
Hosted by a mysterious hooded figure (spoilers not allowed), the players and the audience search for an individual of unique abilities – one with the power to cloud people’s minds, to slip into any role, to make
intuitive connections at lightning speed – the Laugh Jedi.
Drawing on the rich characters, locations, and themes of the Star Wars films, VTSL’s improvised parody highlights the parallels between the skills of an improviser and those of a Jedi to determine who is truly
Master of the Farce. The show recreates the journey of excitement and wonder that audience members experienced when they first saw the films and infuses it with the element of comedy.
To paraphrase Yoda – “Laugh. Or do not. There is no titter.”
