ZipLine Improv at 6th Street!

What happens when live improv meets film noir?  

Post-war Southern California. Mildred Pierce. The Postman Always Rings Twice. Palm trees and sunshine. The rumblings of dissatisfaction.

Maybe a stranger comes to town. Maybe he was already there. Maybe he ignites a fire, what we call passion. Everybody knows passion can destroy lives. And everybody knows improv can make you laugh. 

“You’re a bitter little lady.”                                                                             

"It’s a bitter little world.”

- from "Hollow Triumph”

We're back and thrilled to present a fully improvised tale of Passion Noir! With Bay Area guests from Un-Scripted Theater, The Trifecta and Secret Improv Society: Steven Anacker, Basel Al-Naffouri, Jerry Ruoti, Susie Sargent & Laura Wachtel.

The Passion Noir format was developed by the wonderful performer and teacher Jo McGinley of Impro Theater.
