Fact or Fiction? A Night of Improv Storytelling
If you'd like to play, you'll be asked to write one word down and drop it into a hat. After a little drinking we'll begin drawing names and send you up on stage with a randomly selected word. You have three minutes to tell us all a story based on that word. 
If the audience catches you in a lie we will throw you in jail. If you land in the gallows you must stay until some other liar takes your place. You may be bailed out of jail by a generous friend with a toonie. You may be able to pay off the guard with a fiver.
