The Long Form Play with Scott Thompson
Improvisers are their own writer, director, and performer all in one. The Improvised Play is a format that pushes that dynamic as far as it can be taken in order to create a show that feels theatrically paced, with controlled performances that are as full of dramatic moments as they are with laughter.
In this six week series, improvisers will learn how to speak, move and perform long form improv sets that feel like theatre, culminating in a final performance on Staircase Theatre's main stage.
