It’s the big night. The audience is restless and the lights are hot, but legendary performers Basil Shaw III and Chad Krause are both out sick. So The Understudies must go on and take the stage in their place… if only they knew which play they were going to perform.
The Understudies’ theatrical style of improv creates a full three act play on the spot from a single suggestion. With influences ranging from Tennessee Williams to Neil Simon to Arthur Miller, the genre of the production can be as varied as the stars in the sky. It’s two actors, in three acts, with no limits.
