Improvised History

Improvised History is an entirely improvised show based on what we remember about US History. Tonight, we’ll be presenting our signature show

An Improvised People’s History

The show begins with the audience selecting a chapter from Howard Zinn’s (in)famous A People’s History of the United States, which inspires the ensemble to create an entirely improvised play based around the events from that era of history. Famous and not-so-famous figures will come to life as the cast builds the narrative and tries its best to remember what exactly happened back then. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll probably groan at some of our awful puns.

Note on accessibility from the venue:
The Democracy Center is partially wheelchair accessible, no accessible bathroom on site. The Mandela, Parks, and Chavez rooms are accessible, but the Library is not. Wheelchair users are welcome to use the accessible restroom at Daedalus while we plan our improvements for bathroom accessibility. To reach that bathroom, exit the ramp and turn left on Bow St, at the next building (Daedalus) use their accessible entrance and their restroom will be on the right.
