White Privilege, Black Power + Colossus + Love Onion with Tom Teasley

Interplay is unlike any improv show you've seen before! WIT's own improvisers create exciting mash-up performances with special guests from the worlds of music, puppetry, poetry, dance, and more!

In addition to performances by our company ensembles and special guests, Interplay features a new artistic collaboration every week.

White Privilege, Black Power
In the thought-provoking show, Lewis (who is African-American) and Tindale (who is white) ask each other candid questions about race and perform scenes based on the responses.
Cast: Eva Lewis, Greg Tindale

Colossus
Inspired by the name of a God given by the audience, Colossus creates a whole world before your very eyes.
Cast: Brandon Alston, Annie Barry, Saleh Karaman, Zach Mason, Reaves McElveen, Eva Lewis.

Tom Teasley
Tom Teasley, described in the Washington Post as “a multi-instrumental genius,” maintains a unique career as a solo percussionist, composer and collaborator. Tom collaborates with Love Onion to create a soundscape to their text.

Love Onion
Meet Love Onion

From afar, Love Onion looks like just another dirty root vegetable. But slice that baby open and you’ll find a loving heart surrounded by an emotional support system of vitamin C, calcium and iron. And that's a fact.
