Impro Theatre, one of L.A.’s longest established and most acclaimed improv theater groups, presents Tennessee Williams UnScripted. This is their follow-up show to their well-reviewed, held-over run of Jane Austen UnScripted which ran from Oct 2008 through February 2009 at Theatre Asylum.
Tennessee Williams is one of the most celebrated and widely produced American playwrights. In an attempt to bring his genius to life through the medium of improvisational theatre, Impro Theater invents spontaneous full-length plays about troubled families, innocent outsiders and the haunted youths who destroy them that are true to Tennessee Williams’ intent to be both comic and dramatic. Without any pre-planning, or set scenarios, Impro Theatre uses their dynamic characterizations, poetical wits and narrative skills to deliver a new Tennessee Williams play every night. Drifters, Southern aristocrats, rebels, harpies and wounded youth all might be conjured out of thin air, without any actor knowing who they will be portraying until the story starts. Tennessee Williams UnScripted takes clichés from mid-century American realism and transforms them into in a wildfire of seduction and despair that leaves some hope glowing in the ashes.
The essence of Williams brilliant and timeless poetic dramas and bittersweet meditations on human frailty is brought faithfully to life by this expert team of funny and gifted actors, whose recent explorations of great literary figures include Shakespeare, Dickens, Sondheim, and Jane Austen.
