Description

BATS Improv welcomes special guest troupe True Fiction Magazine, one of the San Francisco’s most exciting long-form improvisation companies. TFM continues to push the envelope of improvisation, exploring new and exciting styles of storytelling in performances around the country. Expect these talented actors to weave in some spooky Halloween themes.

Originally inspired by the over-blown passions of the 30s and 40s pulp novels, TFM pushes improvised theatre to new heights each year, taking their audience on a wild ride into unknown territory that titillates the senses and blows the mind.

A TFM performance is a full evening of long-form spontaneous theatre, as the troupe takes titles suggested by the audience and creates stories which move forward and backward in time, interweave and intersect, until the final resolution. Every performance is completely unique. Don’t miss the group critics call “collaborative narrative genius.”
