Improv Playhouse Of San Francisco

The Improv Playhouse of San Francisco Players are committed to the magic of group storytelling. The narrative is driven by the impulses and passions of the characters they are playing.NAKED STAGE
These stories take place on a single set, in traditional stage-play style. The improvisers play one character each, and there are no built-in transitions or scene breaks . All the actors have is the bare stage, a simple suggestion from the audience, and each other.
The Naked Stage combines San Franciscos tradition of narrative longform improvisation with the demands and surprises of traditional theater. In a sense, the actors are trapped on stage with only each other. Without the usual exit options (lights, time and location jumps, and other scene-enders), they are left to fully confront the characters and situations which they have created in the moment.
