Improvised Play x3
. Autumn Clack and Ruth S McCleskey, the comedy power twosome known as Ophelia’s Rope, are joined by an A-list roster of improvisers, including Brittny Bush, Callina Situka, Christine Weems, Alison Coriell and Station Theater co-director Jessica Brown for a run of fully improvised one-act plays. Clack, unabashed in her praise, calls this squad of comedians her “dream team.”
“Ruth had the idea years ago; she’d read about improvising different plays in different genres,” Clack says, admitting, “I just thought that seemed awfully scary.” But after some cajoling, both women decided to add a weekend of improvised plays to their traditionally scripted play season. Clack adds, “An improvised play has more story structure: There’s a beginning, middle and end. And hopefully, it’s just as funny or moving as your average scripted play.”
8 p.m. November 13-15. Obsidian Theater, 3522 White Oak. For information, call 832-303-1578 or visit boilingpointplayers.com
