“Men don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses,” wrote Dorothy Parker.
 
She also wrote terrific stories and screenplays, poems and epigrams, and witticisms and criticisms. She was a mordantly funny and cynical dissector of early twentieth century high society, and a brilliant observer of the tiny and telling details that reveal the truth about our relationships. Her stories still read like a modern, brilliant stand-up comedian taking to task men who can’t understand women, and women who can’t understand each other.
 
Starting with audience suggestions, Impro Theatre picks up Dorothy’s comedic scalpel and recreates an impressionistic night of Dorothy-style scenes and observation, reminiscent of the Roaring 20’s. Come and join us as we raise an imaginary Martini glass to Dorothy Parker.

STAGE RAW RECOMMENDED!
"Delightful! Dorothy Parker UnScripted is another sterling entry in Impro's repertoire. The entire ensemble is as sharp on their feet as Parker was with her pen. Sublime in its biting humor and as delectable as one of Parker's favorite gin martinis." - Stage Raw
