Precipice Improv Theater’s full-length comic plays draw on the diverse talents and instincts of its cast members, who chart a chuckle-heavy course to audience members’ hearts without the help of prearranged structure, plot, or characters. After cordoning off a spit-take zone for recently imbibed libations, a duo of Precipice improvisers ask the audience to suggest two unrelated locations, then build an entire play around the vastly different settings. As bellowed laughs begin to ricochet off the walls of the intimate comedy theater, the actors delve deeper into their characters’ imagined psyches, discovering their eccentricities and favorite flavors of pie filling. The improv format necessitates that each play be entirely different from the last, so those who opt for the six-ticket package need not worry about their ribs growing numb to the tickle of repeated one-liners.
Guests must be 16 or older to attend a performance.
