Improv 423 - Improvised Tennessee Williams

Sea Tea Improv Studios
75 Pratt Street, Hartford, CT

“Has it ever struck you that life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quick you hardly catch it going?”

Students will take their longform improv to the next level preparing to perform an hour-long improvised play in the style of legendary playwright Tennessee Williams.

Focuses will include creating vivid, relatable characters; telling a compelling story without stressing about “plotting;” earning laughs through commitment and honesty instead of jokes; and of course, comporting oneself as a true southern gentleman.

Students will be expected to devote some time outside class to viewing and reading source material (please have watched the film version of a Streetcar Named Desire by the first class!)

Course will end with a performance at the Sea Tea Comedy Theater.
