Pull the Trigger and get tickets for Chekhov’s Gun Night at UCB Sunset in Los Angeles tomorrow night August 25th 10:30pm - https://sunset.ucbtheatre.com/performance/56444
In celebration of the man and his foreshadowing ways, Chekhov’s Gun Night is an evening of suspenseful scenes and loaded improv. Each performing team will be given a loaded cap gun to be used at their discretion. Build suspense by leaving the unused gun center stage until the final moments, or use it early on in order to propel a monoscene forward but every team must use Chekhov’s Gun.
Toledo Rep - Suzi Barrett, Eugene Cordero, Rebecca Drysdale, Tricia McAlpin, Johnny Meeks, Billy Merritt, Timm Sharp, Joel Spence
The Goblin Boys - Katie Plattner, Rachel Forman, Dana Cox, Paige Klone
Penguins on the Playground - Jen Krueger and Mark David Christenson
