Includes bibliographical references (pages 43-44) Includes video of Front Porch Improv’s performance of "All About Eve Show" at Ghost Coast Distillery, Savannah, Georgia, September 14, 2019.
"This thesis explores how by embracing the basic principles of improv, using Meisner's Word Repetition Game, Stanislavski's Magic If, and Dudley Knight's Knight-Thompson Speechwork, I 'followed the fear' and learned to live in the magic of long form improvisation with the all-women improv ensemble All About Eve. By examining my journey, this thesis takes a closer look at building the character, the game, as well as the bond within the ensemble." --Abstract
