Rancy Neagan + Runaway Train + Commonwealth: That American Life
Rise Up! at DCAC - September 23, 2017
Part rallying cry, part group hug, Rise Up! is an artistic response to the life and times we live in.
Rise Up! explores all the ways the personal really is political, and vice versa.
Rancy Neagan: Unabashedly Nasty
An all-female troupe of unabashedly nasty ladies, Rancy Neagan takes on improv the way she takes on the patriarchy: she punches up, she believes vulnerability is a strength, and she doesn’t apologize for being exactly who she is.
Cast: Sarah Bucher, Maria Gahan, Justine Hipsky, Kelsey Peters, Sam Schifrin, Heather Marie Vitale. Coach: Ceci De Robertis
Runaway Train: Other Timelines
Runaway Train looks at the distinct importance we have on one another by exploring the effects of our presence or absence.
Cast: Michael Alvino, Nina Hsu, Lauren LaVare, Nic Small, Lauren Woody
Commonwealth: That American Life
We get a suggestion from the audience of a story they recently read. Interview them about why it drew their attention. We improvise a podcast writers room on how to fully develop the stories from that suggestion and then improvise a spoof “This American Life” podcast.
Cast: Jules Duffy, Dennis Johnson, Ryan Krull, Jamie Lantinen, Jaci Pulice, Kate Symes, Stewart Walsh. Director: Mark Chalfant
