 LA RONDE - Tuesday 23 May & Thursday 25 May 

Through the La Ronde we explore the intricate relationships of a small group of friends/family that come and go in one specific location. The La Ronde's hitch is that only two improvisors can be on stage at any point in time. Intrigue, romance, deception ensues, as these, often disparate personalities are forced to coexist. Oh the drama of the human existance! It could happen!

ARMANDO - Wednesday 24 May & Saturday 27 May

The "Armando" (named after Chicago Improv comedian Armando Diaz) begins with a personal monologue inspired by an audience suggestion. It is a true story as remembered by the performer. The improvisers then create a montage of scenes inspired by that monologue. Repeat.  As they say, there is comedy in truth!
