A good-natured improv show in the style of The Castle, Off the Map is set in a fictional kiwi town, and shows the interlinked lives of the curious characters that live there. This special return performance brings together the original NZIF 2009 cast’s Court Jesters (past and present): Brendon Bennetts, Emma Cusdin, Eli Matthewson, and Daniel Pengelly.
Director Brendon Bennetts (NZ) has been teaching and directing improv for the Court Jesters since 2002. He hosts comedy quiz podcast THE NERD DEGREE, teaches high school English, and in his spare time writes plays. Brendon is proud to have performed at NZIF every year since it started.
The Court Jesters are a Christchurch based improv group that have been performing their signature show Scared Scriptless since 1990.
