Not a Pyramid Scheme featuring Unhinged and Life in a Day
Washington Improv Theater - May 26, 2023
"Not a Pyramid Scheme" is an improvised satire that takes aim at the world of Multi-Level Marketing (think essential oils and overpriced makeup). The show explores scammers, grifters, and the lies we tell ourselves (and each other) to get ahead.
Each performance of “Not a Pyramid Scheme” will create the story of an improvised brand-new MLM, exploring the world of its founder and members. The show will poke fun at capitalist excess and culty groupthink while honoring the realities of people who join MLMs looking to make a living. For audience members, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to see what it could be like to be your own boss and follow your dreams. Bring a friend (or 5!) to this show!
Unhinged is comprised of Elizabeth Cutler and Samantha Watson, two seasoned players who also can’t get enough of your wild and wacky dating app stories. Unhinged uses the audience’s most memorable dating app anecdotes to inspire a whimsical, upbeat, and joyful performance. Love may be a battlefield (ain’t that the truth, Ms. Benatar) but if we can find the humor, then we’re winning…right? Right.
Life in a Day uses the magic of improv to show you the past, present, and future, based on a true story. Cast: Matt Alexander, Morgan Burris, Chris Clark, Nora Dell, Genevieve Dabrowski, Sarah Herhold, Tim Montgomery, Hannah Piper, Molly Scott, Mikki Smith, MJ Welch
