SF Improv Theater | Un-Scripted Theater Company

Theater doesn't get any more live than this

Un-Scripted Theater Company creates smart, innovative, and entertaining improvised theater that delights audiences and advances the craft and art of improvisation.

About Our Shows

Since 2002, Un-Scripted Theater Company has staged over forty productions in a range of genres and styles: stage plays, musicals, narrative long-form, improv comedy, and theatrical experiments. We aim to expand the boundaries of improvised theater, featuring shows in which our improvisors, using audience suggestions, strive to create plays or musicals that are sometimes serious, sometimes comic, and often both, with fully improvised dialogue, songs, and dances created before your eyes.

Most of our improvised theatrical performances occur in limited runs of about six weeks each. Our late-night, freeform improv comedy show, DASH, happens every Saturday at 10pm.

And It All Went to Hell

It all seemed like such a good idea: the perfect plan was in place, life would be a paradise… until chaos ensued. Inspired by great writers from Oscar Wilde to Neil Simon, TV shows like Frasier and films such as Some Like it Hot, this completely improvised, full-length play will show you what happens when good people make bad choices. Whether you call it comedy or call it farce, you will definitely call it funny.
