Improvisational comedy, or improv, is an unscripted, theatrical performance. The Southington Public Library is partnering with Hartford-based Sea Tea Improv to offer improv workshops and a final performance, Southington Night Live, to diverse community groups and ages between July and August 2022. Each event includes exercises and group discussion designed to help participants use improv to examine and decipher daily life and current events, such as COVID and other collective trauma. This program was funded in part by a $2,900 April Quick Grant.
