Crime is afoot! Watch as our cast plans, perpetrates, and prosecutes a felony chosen by the audience. The performers will be judges, attorneys, defendants, and more as they improvise a trial while simultaneously exploring the scene of the crime. Will justice be served or will the guilty walk free?
Reasonable Doubt is an hour-long improvised crime show. Based on a suggestion from the audience, a team of actors will create a world full of victims and innocent bystanders, unaware that among their ranks is at least one criminal. While they may think this is an ordinary day like any other, that villain is about to change their lives and community forever. In addition to depicting the crime itself, the actors will take on the roles of judge, attorney, and witness as they conduct a criminal trial and attempt to bring the offender to justice. As the actors switch back and forth from courtroom to crime scene, they will examine and explore the same event from multiple perspectives, revealing the biases, limitations, and gaps in knowledge of each observer. The storylines will develop and intersect spontaneously, creating dishonest witnesses, burgeoning conspiracies, and unexpected heroes.
