The Improvised Play Festival

  1. About the Group:

    Furiously Missing performs a long-form narrative based show that focuses on helping the audience answer the universal question of “what are you missing?”

    Whether it be “my dad”, “true love” or even “my favorite candy bar”, the suggestion will inform their show as they develop a world that helps us realize: its not just finding what we’re missing that counts, but the delightful, improvised journey we take to get there.

    About the Festival:

    Each year the Hideout Theatre in Austin assembles a full weekend of improvised one-act plays. The schedule is packed with The Hideout’s own repertoire of shows, exciting new shows from other theaters in Austin, and special out-of-town guest troupes.

  3. About the Show:

    “With fairy tale shows such as “Wicked” and “Into the Woods” being Broadway and touring hits, and the Noir style being popular both as a movie and play genre, our concept highlights what makes both genres special.

    It brings a gritty theme into what would normally be the fantasy world of the fairy tale. What would the story of Humpty Dumpty look like if it were not an accident but a murder? How about the domestic like of “Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater” who sequestered his wife in some isolated place because their relationship went sour? Or what was the real reason the Wolf kept destroying the Pigs’ homes?”

  4. About the Group:
    Local Genius Society formed in late 2010 by a group of improv students from the Hideout Theatre. After building their early career performing shortform, including a run of successful “Groundhog Day” shows, the geniuses embarked on longform narrative in the summer of 2011. Since then, Local Genius Society has opened for notable Austin improv troupes such as: Paralellagramophonograph, Girls Girls Girls: Improvised Musical Comedy,The Glamping Trip, and Confidence Men. They have performed in Wafflefest 2011 and the first ever Improvised Play Festival in 2011 in Austin, TX.

  5. About the Show:

    A girl opens a Door.
    And falls through.
    Falling,
    Falling,
    Falling.
    Suddenly, the world around her is foreign and dreamlike, part Lewis Carroll,
    part Hayao Miyazaki, with dashes of Maurice Sendak,
    winks to The Wizard of Oz, and a touch of The Neverending Story.
    And it’s all improvised.
    Will she return home?
    Or will this world crumble around her?
    Spirited.
