The programming for Romance Week is as follows:
Developed by former VTS Artistic Director Denise Jones, this show premiered at the 2019 Vancouver Fringe Festival where it played to packed houses. The Love of Your Life is a witty and romantic look at one real couple’s relationship as revealed through interviews and interpreted by VTS improvisers. An actual couple from the audience joins the ensemble on stage for the show. During the first half, they are interviewed by the host. The ensemble, utilizing the information given by the couple, re-creates some key moments in their life leading up to the present time. The second half of the show takes what has been learned about the couple, infuses that with suggestions from the audience, and projects what the future will hold for them in a series of improvised scenarios. “One of the show’s most moving performances at the Fringe Festival happened when we featured a couple who had been together 40 years,” says Ms. Jones. “This show will touch both your heart and your funny bone.”
