Die-Nasty, the Live Improvised Soap Opera Returns... with DYNASTY!
It’s a sizzling season of shoulder pads and chandeliers, eyebrows and power towers!
The year is 1983. The cell phones come in brief cases. And all the power and energy in the world courses wildly between the freshly gleaming towers of downtown… CALGARY! YES! CALGARY! World class city! City of head offices and big business and oil… and Ralph Klein! Having recently secured the bid for the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, Calgary’s bejewelled royalty wheels and deals and plots and schemes. And nobody does it better than the storied Rochefort family, civic leaders and world-wide groundbreakers in the caustic and competitive field of OIL BYPRODUCTS! Denture adhesive! Lubricating Gels! …. Floor Wax!
Their greatest enemy isn’t mullets or headbands or Crockett and Tubbs… it’s the desperate and scraping Camembert clan. Always angling for a better standing, for more influence, for money, money, money.
Join the whole Die-Nasty family for a thrilling, radical, righteous, tubular season of diamonds, oil, Olympiads, cat-fights, bedrooms and boardroom …but mostly GREED, SEDUCTION, BETRAYAL… AND REVENGE!
