GAME AND THE SCENE with Alex Fernie

Juggling the game of the scene and what's actually happening in the scene can be hard... having just one of those two things can lead to scenes that feel disjointed and hard to keep going. In this class, we'll focus on identifying and playing what's funny about the scene as well as committing to the action of the scene honestly and reactively, in order to create scenework that is sustainable, funny and fun to play!


Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #223
