Presented by Jinni Lyons 

As a solo improviser, I take suggestions from the audience as inspiration to create instant stories with multiple, distinct characters, all of whom I play myself.  We will see two separate stories and then I ask you, the audience, which one you want to see more of – and then we follow that thread to see where it goes… 

Although no two shows are the same, they are always about people – how we connect, the masks we wear, our attempts at honesty.  Whether I am a pair of old men in a pub, a roomful of giddy children at a birthday party and their harassed chaperone, or a bunch of balloons and their seller – the variety of human nature provides an endless source of bittersweet emotions to mine and portray. 

This is theatre – it just happens to be funny sometimes.  

“Astonishing and hilarious” - Hideout Theatre, Austin, Texas 

“Magical intimate character improv” - Bristol Improv Theatre 

“An exemplary improviser…I have never seen anyone like her” - Mike McShane, Whose Line is it Anyway?
