The Improvised Play

FORM

This class will work towards creating fully improvised 30 minute plays. Rather than focusing on the tropes of specific genres we will focus on acting and basic dramatic structure. As in a monoscene the comedy will come from clear character Games but these multi-scene plays will also be built around the characters’ objectives, obstacles and actions. Although the plays will almost always be funny we’ll make emotional honesty and commitment the priority. The class will culminate with us improvising two mind-blowing one-act plays live on YouTube. Some outside of class preparation will be required.
