About the Workshop

The Harold is an essential long-form structure created by Del Close that consists of a series of seemingly unrelated scenes with multiple beats that should magically connect by the end. This 6-hour workshop will focus on initiating strong ideas from monologue openings, playing character-based games, and working on simple, pattern-oriented group games in a fun, supportive environment. Previous improv experience is a requirement.
