Use Your Words! is a one-woman show—in five wordless scenes—about a new mother struggling with the responsibility of caring for a tiny human. The show is rooted in comic physicality with many props mimed—most importantly, the baby.
Imagine The Play That Goes Wrong with a much smaller cast and no words and less murder.
Maybe don’t imagine The Play That Goes Wrong at all.
Let’s elaborate: An unsuspecting trombone player will be the onstage musician... Please don't tell them there's no speaking or singing in this production. Or that they’ll be onstage.
Is this clear as mud? Please focus.
This play developed out of Karen’s 18 years of performing as 1/2 of the duo Imp. This ground-breaking duo Imp improvised wordless scenes at festivals nationally and internationally. Imagine Charlie Chaplin mixed with Looney Tunes. Did we mention Karen did this for 18 YEARS?
But this play, Use Your Words! IS NOT improvised. It’s a play. With a script. Weird since there are no words...
