Three acting troupes rehearse the same classical passion play at three key moments in history in Passion Play, a clever and highly original comedy-drama from Tony Award-winner and Pulitzer Prize-nominee Sarah Ruhl (In the Next Room, or the vibrator play). Ruhl has been hailed as "one of the brightest new talents to emerge in the theater" by The New York Times, and in Passion Play she weaves a funny and lusty tale of community spirit, individual morality and global politics set in three vastly different historical periods: Queen Elizabeth's England, Hitler's Germany and Reagan's America.

This was my third Impro Theater performance and like the others, it was excellent. One of the most fun and interesting aspects of this particular format was to watch how each of the four "episodes" started in a relatively ordinary situation, and concluded, through subtle twists and turns, in the Twilight Zone that is so familiar to all of us.

- "Masters of evanescence, the performers at Impro Theatre assemble the theatrical equivalents of sand sculptures. Their shows are seen for one night only, never to be repeated...the performers are uniformly professional, comfortable in their skins and with one another...the show’s amazingly deft sound and lighting improvisers create spur-of-the-moment effects that are crucial to the fun." --<em>Los Angeles Times</em>
- "[<em>Chekhov Unscripted</em> is] the most authentic and thoughtful staging of Anton Chekhov I’ve experienced in America...The play remained from first to last rich with symbol and theme...I laughed and wept..I’ve rarely seen a company so thoroughly comprehend the bizarre hyperreality of this writer’s universe...I’m seeing this as many times as I can before its run ends." -<em>-Stage and Cinema</em>
