Google maps and Apple Maps make it hard to find once you're in Fort Mason Center. Pro-tip, once you make the left into the parking lot, BATS is in the building in the on the left side of the parking lot (within the lot, not on the perimeter) across from The Long Now and Greens Restaurant.

Description

BATS Improv presents one of the wildest and most unpredictable improv competitions ever. This format includes directors battling it out to guide their actors toward realizing a unique theatrical vision. Each director creates and sets the tone for the improvisers’ scene, the end of which is voted by the audience as either a hit or a flop. The director with the most hits by the end of the night will win the coveted Director’s Cup. But there’s a catch – each director gets a total of only 13 minutes total to tell their stories—regardless of how many turns they take. Director’s Cut promises to be a fast-paced, anything goes night of improv not to be missed! Directed by Kasey Klemm.
