Columns/Pillars

Description

For this game you need 2 volunteers from the audience. They stand/sit at the front sides of the stage, and act as pillars for the players. 2 players do a scene, and whenever they need a word they tap one of the pillars on the shoulder. The pillars say whatever comes to them, and the players then justify why that has been said. Some words fit perfectly, others will be completely random!
