True Blue

True Blue at the toronto fringe

What are the ripples that follow after a tragedy? How is a community affected by loss? Who benefits from murder? True Blue is a fully improvised police drama about family, lies and loss set in rural Ontario. Though inspired by atmospheric police procedurals such as True Detective, The Fall, Top of the Lake and Broadchurch, each episode of True Blue is a standalone mystery.


“...director Colin Munch is pushing the boundaries of improvised storytelling...“ Carly Maga, The Toronto Star

“With True Blue, director Colin Munch is bringing something different to Bad Dog’s improv lineup and the effect is thrilling… An hour of theatre that plays on a formula you’ve surely seen a hundred times (Law & Order, NYPD Blue, Castle, every other show on TV) and creates something you’ve never seen before.” - Kelly Bedard, My Entertainment World


Following a sold-out run at the Bad Dog Comedy Theatre and a hugely successful run at the Toronto Fringe, we pleased to bring back True Blue for one night only!

What are the ripples that follow after a tragedy? How is a community affected by loss? Who benefits from murder? True Blue is a fully improvised police drama about family, lies and loss set in rural Ontario. Though inspired by atmospheric police procedurals such as True Detective, The Fall, Top of the Lake and Broadchurch, each episode of True Blue is a standalone mystery. From the discovery of the crime scene to the unravelling of alibis, loyalties are tested and evidence is gathered in a spontaneously crafted thriller - as much a character study of two detectives as of the town they are charged with protecting. 

True Blue features mainstays of Toronto’s theatrical community, including: Amy Matysio (Wolf Cop, Soulpepper), Anand Rajaram (2016 Dora nominee, Mustard - Tarragon Theatre), Aurora Browne (Trudeau & Levesque - Video Cabaret, Baroness Von Sketch Show), Danny Pagett (Help Yourself, 2012 Fringe New Play Winner, Theatre Brouhaha), Kevin Vidal (2016 Canadian Screen Award, Best Ensemble, Sunnyside), Paloma Nuñez (Chile Con Carne - Theatre Alameda), Shanda Bezic (Rookie Blue, Flashpoint), Jocelyn Geddie (The Sketchersons) & music by Nick DiGaetano (Toronto, I Love You - Bad Dog Theatre).
