The Suitcase

From Austin Improv Community Wiki

The Suitcase was a mainstage show at The Institution Theater.


The show opened with a set of monologues, and then the story split up, with independent scenes happening in a number of locations in and around The Institution Theater. Each audience member would follow one particular set of performers to one particular location, and thus no audience member would get to see the whole story. The performers re-convened in the theater for a more traditional narrative-improv section, and the story ended with a final act in 'purgatory', with all the characters having a discussion in the 'batting cages' part of the theater building.

Cortney DeAngelo was the show's tech director, and Adriane Shown was in charge of mise-en-scene and costume design.
