The Great Unknown 

Wednesday, Jan 12 2011
Take Dickens (please). Would his work be more interesting, more accessible, more humorous (which is to say humorous at all) if its characters were, say, in a post-apocalyptic setting? Or how about on the American prairie? What if they were caught in the confines of a Quentin Tarantino film? Welcome to the Un-Scripted Theater Company, whose cast members start with a single premise – their most recent one was, in fact, Dickens – and takes suggestions from the audience as to what genre will be their context. Then they improvise a full-length musical (or not-musical, depending) production from the combination. Tonight as part of B.O.O.M. Fest, the troupe returns to the soon-to-be-shuttered Off-Market Theater to in a farewell ad-hoc performance that (as of now) knows no premise or bounds. That’s for you to decide.
