We're Sowy Improv
Monthly on first Thursdays
Join Laughing Pig's resident improvisors in year-round shows that are often experimental and always hilarious, even if sometimes they probably aren't supposed to be.
This is not a new play. This is not a new story. For some in the theatre community, doing a "Labute show" triggers eye rolls and knowing smirks due to how often they are staged, or the sometimes clumsy and out-of-touch approaches to progressive ideas they contain.
But lately it has become clear that we are still a clumsy and out-of-touch society. And so we have this play. Unremarkable people stuck in an unremarkable town, looking for some value in their lives.
September 28- October 6th 2018
