FRINGE ENCORE - PRECINCT: An Improvised Cop Comedy

MainLine Theatre & Goddamn Bear

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!

Starring Andy Assaf, Jason Grimmer, and Dimitri Kyres.
Directed by Brent Skagford

Nominated for Best Comedy Award by Just For Laughs - Fringe 2017
Winner of the Visual Identity Award - Fringe 2017
