We’re proud to announce our 2014 festival dates, October 6th to 11th. The Festival is packed with gifted performers — both from across the world and as close as your backyard — all coming together for a week of over 28 performances at the Performance Works Theatre and Studio 1398. That’s 31 shows created live, using only your suggestions and the imaginations of two dozen talented improvisers.

But that’s hardly all — VIIF also has public and performer workshops, and general awesomeness happening all week long.
