PORCH PLAY is an instant play in one act. Improv actors are instant playwrights, and this production draws on that skill to create complex interweaving lives and storytelling with depth and honesty. Elements of comedy and drama are folded into the story in equal measure.
PORCH PLAY features a 45-minute long performance and opens Friday, March 17, 2017 at 8:30 PM at Pendulum Space, 1803 W. Byron Street, and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30 PM through May 6, 2017. There are no performances on March 31, April 1, April 14, or April 15. Tickets are free, and may be reserved through the Theatre Momentum website at theatremomentum.com/shows
“Theatre Momentum is the only theatre in Chicago dedicated to dramatic improvisation. We strive to create three-dimensional characters, dynamic relationships, and dramatic stories that present the breadth of scripted theatre, hand-in-hand with the immediacy and energy of improvisation,” notes Artistic Director Tony Rielage. “Theatre Momentum creates theatre that happens to be improvised.”
