Family Drama uniquely blends the compelling narrative of a three-act stage play with the excitement and surprise of improvisation. Like many traditional American plays, the story will unfold in real time, on a single set, and with each actor portraying only one character. This hilarious drama is also completely improvised...the only thing the actors know is that their characters are somehow related and that they are getting together for the holidays. The audience selects the title for the show, which inspires the themes, relationships, stories, etc. Everything else is created right in front of the everyone’s eyes!
