Please get excited for the 2015 Improvised Play Festival lineup. Because there’s a lot to get excited about.
First off, our good friends The Dahl House, Nothing and Everything, and The Fitzgeralds Save The World are returning for one last show each.
Second, Jon Bolden and Steve Moore of Physical Plant Theatre are colluding on a special project called The Half-Written Play, where the first half is a scripted new work by Steve, and the second half is improvised.
Speaking of Steve, he’s also been working with PGraph on a new format/show called Box & String, which will debut at the fest.
Our out of town guests are insane, too. Jinni Lyons from LONDON is coming with her solo show. Vinny Francois from Montreal is directing a duo show about relationships and breakups (he’ll hold auditions and rehearsals here). The Black Lodge from Seattle is bringing their improvised Twin Peaks show, and it’s directed by Elizabeth Brammer!
PLUS, Jill Bernard is coming down to teach a FIVE HOUR solo workshop, perform her one woman musical Drum Machine, and host a solo showcase.
Add to that Golden (the what will then be the current Student Mainstage), Hurly friggin’ Burly, The Escorts, Confidence Men, Waiting for Batman, and Danger! Warning! Improv!, and you’ve got a hell of a lineup.
