Hey there, time traveller!

Many Fringe shows can only envy this one’s passionate fans, who sell out shows and pepper performances with howls of laughter and shouts of glee.
The 12 cast members are welcomed like rock stars as they appear on stage as characters loosely based on the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game and improvise a 60-minute scene with considerable quick-witted silliness.
But what if you’re not into D&D? Can you still dig the show?
Yes. Even for those of us who don’t know a changeling from an elf, the show is a master class of the A-list of Winnipeg’s improvisers, leading the audience into a precious state of playfulness that most of us have lost as we aged.
The question isn’t whether to see this show. The question is how long you have to line up to get tickets.
