Second Congregational Church @ 16 Court Square

After receiving inspiration from the audience in the form of suggested words, The Ha-Ha’s create an unscripted play right on the spot, complete with wild and wooly characters, emotional relationships, and a thematic narrative winding its way throughout the totally improvised production. You won’t believe they’re making it up on the fly as The Ha-Ha’s improvise a series of unrelated scenes that artfully and comically will tie together to form a cohesive, wacky, whole comic production. Theatrical magic before your very eyes! Times and locations subject to change.

John Reese will offer scenes from John Cariani’s Almost Maine. The setting of playwright John Cariani’s play is the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. He has described his play as a “a midwinter night’s dream,” and has created delightful characters—real people who are honestly dealing with the most difficult thing in life: love and love lost. The two scenes to be presented are humorous, touching and laced with an occasional tinge of sadness. The action of these scenes is joyful and often unexpected and surely will engage anyone who has experienced the perils of romance. Times and locations subject to change.

Seth Lepore will present SuperHappyMelancholyexpialidocious, a stranger-than-fiction satire about the war on thought. The happiness industry is turned on its head to reveal the farcical ideology of the positive thinking movement. Think you know happiness? Think again!

From Texas megachurches turned motivational hothouses, to the latest testament of self-actualization from Oprah’s Book Club, nothing is safe from Lepore’s scrutinizing looking glass.
