Improvised History is an entirely improvised show based on what we remember about US History. Tonight we'll feature our show format called

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.


NEW THIS SEASON

Tickets are free! Eventbrite raised their fees, which made us realize - we're really just a bunch of history and improv nerds who love doing this and would do it with or without the ticket sales. If you enjoy the show, you're welcome to make a donation after the show (cash, credit, or venmo), but are by no means under any obligation. Just come laugh about history with us!

Due to space constraints, we have a maximum audience size of 50 people; those who have reserved a ticket here in advance will be given priority.

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.
