Improv – Austin, TXAdd to favorites
Inspired by Jack Hill’s Switchblade Sisters, cult television show Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (G.L.o.W.) and old-school roller derby, Bridgeport is a troupe female prisoners from a north Texas incarceration unit performing short-form improvisation.
Bridgeport Correctional Facility Short Form Impromptu Skit Players returned to Austin in June at ColdTowne Theater after an 8 year break, last playing at the Out of Bounds festival in 2006. The show has a sketchprov, long-form feel, using short form games as a means to explore the characters and their relationships with one another.
