Show Notes

Yvonne Conybeare is a director and actor and lives in New York. Robin Wiggs is a writer and improv performer and lives in London. I met them in our Improv IV class online, and I knew I had to interview them together.

Yvonne and Kenn Adams, director of synergy theater, are old friends, and so we talk about Theater Sports New York, and the origin of Kenn's Play by Play. Yvonne has insights on how our defensiveness affects our improvisation and how to overcome it.

Robin joins the interview a bit later and we talk about improv in London and how Robin prepares for performances. Make sure that you listen all the way through the show for something a little different at the end.

Within the Synergy Theater family, I consider Deb Kern Synergy Theater's matriarch. I've heard Kenn refer to her as his longest-running student. Lynn Shields is another powerful force for good within Synergy Theater. Lynn is a Synergy Theater player, and we talk about her foray into directing the spontaneous soap opera series Days of our Wives. Deb and Lynn are wise, funny, and dedicated to the art of improvisation. They inspire everyone around them to be their best selves on and off the stage. ...
