The Life Game combines interviews with improvisation to create an electrifying radio storytelling event, performed in front of a live audience.

The format is the brainchild of Keith Johnstone, the godfather of improvisation and founder of the Loose Moose Theatre Company in Calgary, and has been performed on stages around the world.

​​​​​​Each 30-minute episode is based on one person's life story — their successes and failures, hopes and dreams, love and loss — told as a live interview interspersed with improvised scenes.

The Life Game airs on CBC Radio One on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. (8 NT) beginning June 28.
