Theatresports is organised improvisational theatre, where teams of players perform brief 'games' for points. The games are all designed to provide a framework to allow the players' improvisional talents to shine. Developed by director Keith Johnstone in Calgary, Alberta, in 1977, he owns the copyright and trademark.
