On stage: the week in theatre

Clive Barker’s The History of the Devil takes the stage at Fantasia, Raise the Stakes theatre explores Lunduntown and Montreal Improv Theatre celebrates its Impro-Niversary.

Making it up as they go along: Montreal Improv Theatre celebrates its second anniversary

Those mourning the close of Just for Laughs, never fear. This weekend marks the 2nd anniversary of the Montreal Improv Theatre, and to celebrate they’re hosting a four-day festival of totally unscripted fun.

Montreal’s home of bilingual improvised comedy programming, founded in 2010 by Kirsten Rasmussen, Marc Rowland, François Vincent and Bryan Walsh, is inviting hometown favourites and touring delights for a series of night-time shows and some afternoon workshops.
