Lines From A Hat

Lines From A Hat


Players get suggestions for famous quotes, lines of dialogue, sayings or even clichés from the audience by having them write their ideas down on slips of paper. An idea is obtained i.e. location, relationship, conflict. Two players are selected and they take some of the lines from the “hat”. The scene begins and at random times during the scene the players substitute the written lines in their pocket for their dialogue. Other players may enter but must pull from the hat and use the audience lines also.
