The Original Cast


The improvised play's the thing! Watch as The Original Cast improvises a full play in the style of the great American playwright Sam Shepard. You won't need your whole seat - just the edge of it - as you discover what happens next along with the cast.

Though bleak and brimming with rootless characters living at the edges of society, Shepard's plays were filled with black humor, surreal beauty, and intense heart. Join us as we explore the dark side of the American psyche.

The Original Cast is Tom Kelley, Eric Kuehnemann, Emily McKeown, Courtney Salvage, Anne Veal, Steve Ward, and Patrick Williams. They have created over 50 improvised plays in the styles of Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Anton Chekhov, and Sam Shepard.
