“The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow.” -Mark Twain
#80. Infusion Theatre Company, in conjunction with DCA Theater, presents the world premiere of The Improv Play. Walt got the nod. He’s leaving Chicago’s Second City for “Saturday Night Live.” His success makes others tally their own comedic situation. Ben lost his job chasing the big joke. Ellie lost her boyfriend trying to be funny. Walker lost his humor wanting to be taken seriously. As Walt heads to New York, Lindsay packs for Idaho and Stan contemplates Schaumburg. The Improv Play is a behind-the-laughter look at actors struggling with their dream and their reality.
