Written by celebrated dramatist, author and director Brian Friel (Philadelphia, Here I Come!, Dancing at Lughnasa), Faith Healer centers on Frank Hardy, his wife Grace and his manager Teddy. Hardy is an Irish faith healer who travels through the U.K. performing his "gift," which sometimes fails him. This story of love, memory, belief and choice unfolds over the course of four monologues, presenting the plot from multiple perspectives. A critical darling since its 1979 Broadway debut, Faith Healer has enjoyed numerous revivals. Learn More

Improvisation is the practice of acting, singing, talking and reacting, of making and creating, in the moment and in response to the stimulus of ones immediate environment and inner feelings.
During the Valentine's Day Improv Workshop, we were challenged and stretched to think on our feet. I loved every minute!
I would recommend this workshop for anybody who wants to learn more about improvisation.
The teacher is Gary Jacobs, Artistic Director of Precipice Improv.

Tired of the boring old box of Valentine’s Day chocolates and the (yawn) dozen long stem roses? Wouldn’t it be great if you could do something that’s truly fun and memorable to celebrate the day? Join Precipice for a special Valentine’s Day Improv Workshop.
Designed for both singles and couples, and suitable for everyone regardless of experience, this two-hour workshop will guide you through fun and playful exercises in a gentle and supportive atmosphere. And since this is Valentine’s Day, some of the exercises will celebrate the loving relationships in our lives.
Improv training isn’t just for actors or comedians. Much as yoga helps you to stretch your body and relax your mind, improv exercises help you to relax your body and mind, and build skills and attitudes like these:
- Trust and Collaboration
- Optimism and Playfulness
- Empathy and Observation
- And, oh yeah: Improv is FUN!
