Performing for over eight years, Improv Anonymous, Unexpected Productions’ resident narrative troupe, has presented classic and innovative improvisational formats. They now take off the safety net of carefully rehearsed structures and open it up to you. At each performance, the improvisers will interact with the audience, explore options, and together, you and the performers will choose the night’s format. Every show is a tight rope walk of improv. You’ve heard that no improv shows are ever the same, but it’s never been truer than in Wild Card.

House of Ink is an improvised murder mystery in a house full of famous writers. Murder Isn’t Always Premeditated…Sometimes It’s Improvised.

YOU, the audience will choose one author (who is not in the show). Then six literary giants, who have been invited to that author’s house, will appear for a writing retreat. Then the madness begins. Your author is found murdered at the beginning of the show. And, you will die laughing.

The audience member who has read the most books by these authors gets to secretly choose the murderer.

The other six writers are trapped in the house overnight, and one by one, end up dead. Can the remaining authors determine who the murderer is before it’s too late?
