Two actors start a scene, everyone else is on the back line. The host every now and again shouts “meanwhile…” and then gives the cast a suggestion for a scene inspired by the current scene. For instance “meanwhile back in the bat cave”.

Show introduction

“This game is called Meanwhile. We’re going to start with two of our players doing a scene, and when another player shouts “Meanwhile” we’ll move to that new location. To get us started could I get some suggestions of a location?”
