Game of Chance is the improv show that transforms the theatre into a boardgame with the audience as the board! Join our teams of intrepid improvisers as they race to move their tokens through the board (you) to the finish. If the playing piece stops on you - you set our teams the challenge. Are you up to it?

Greg Ellis and Allie Rutherford of Gear Productions have been producing improv shows for years and enjoying board games even longer! Game of Chance gives them the opportunity to combine both in a show that transforms the theatre into a boardgame with the audience as the board!

In the style of Snakes and Ladders mixed with Monopoly teams of intrepid improvisers race to the finish moving their oversized inflatable playing pieces down the board. Every square is an audience member and if the playing piece stops on an audience member they set the team their next improv challenge. Audience members can rise to the occasion or pass and make the team draw from the Deck of Chance. At the end of every scene the audience has 3 choices - back one space, forward one space or miss a turn! The possibilities for the sort of cruel treatment and disagreements that go hand in hand with board games are endless.

GEAR Productions have produced several seasons of the musical improv show Vance fontaine as well as a number of successful NZIF Shows. They also run the popular Comedians Against Humanity monthly at VKs Comedy Club.

The New Zealand Improv Festival serves up a smorgasbord of improvised theatre to Wellington, New Zealand, all performed by the country’s top companies and practitioners. With 20 shows in just five days, there's something for everyone - comedy, horror, music, poetry and more!
