Written Lines

Written Lines


Before the show the audience write down random lines of dialogue on paper. Before a scene the actors randomly select 4 lines each but don’t read them. They start a scene from suggestion and at any point pull out the lines and say them as if they belong in the scene. The lines are reacted to and justified and incorporated into the scene, and change the scene’s direction.
