Tongue & Groove Spontaneous Theater presents BY DESIGN
Describe a design of yours that floundered and/or flew  a life design, love design, work design, art design.  Metaphorical or literal.

Inspired by your anonymous responses submitted pre-show, Tongue & Groove instantly performs a montage of hilarious and heartbreaking scenes and monologues exploring the human experience.  

Post-performance Q&A with cast; includes discussion: how is improv designed?  

Dazzling. Inquirer.
Hilarious.and fearless. Phila Weekly.
Will explode your expectations of what improvisation can be. Phawker.
Improv or not, this is great theateracted with soul-baring sincerity, intelligence and humor. Go see this! City Paper.


Improvisers know that creating something out of nothing is a process of discovery, not invention.
Being open to a collaborative outcome, releasing pre-conceived ideas,being comfortable in the unknown, accepting change, being flexible in the face of disruption. Being Present.
These are the skills of the improviser. And they can be learned and applied to every aspect of work and life.
Come play in the world of improv and practice these skills!
The workshop is designed to create a safe, comfortable environment in which you can release tension and explore. No one is singled out the activities are collaborative and supportive. This is not about performing its about learning the skills that performers use, and applying them to your own needs. No experience necessary; Design Thinkers, Artists, and the Improv-curious are all encouraged to play.

Online ticket sales stop 2 hours before show, but tickets are available at the door -- be sure to arrive early!
