Mild West
That was the trouble with explaining with words. If you explained with gunpowder, people listened.
— Dean F. Wilson, Dustrunner

The western frontier: a boiling pot of ambition and opportunity. But when such strong personalities and ideals clash, there's only one possible outcome: a duel.

Mild West: Draw! is an instant longform by Dunedin's Improsaurus, where life hangs on the flip of a coin!

There is only one rule in Mild West: Draw. When two characters face off in a duel, who lives and who dies is decided by a coin toss. Playing with the idea of the protagonist/antagonist in traditional storytelling, this forces the improvisers to really work their storytelling skills. A great longform feels like everything went as intended, but when any character can be killed off by chance, the improvisers have their work cut out of them!

Come along and join the drama. Choose your favourite characters, feel the tension, and watch in suspense as the coin flies through the air.

Improsaurus is Dunedin's resident improv troupe, specializing in grounded, character-based longform. Each and every one of their fortnightly shows is a completely new format. With this, Improsaurus is constantly pushing the envelope of what improv can do.
