24 Public performance, Uber Reaction, Walltown Theater, 1225 Berkeley St., Durham (8 pm). Buy tickets!

The improvised story line follows characters as they Uber to a location and meet new characters. Then the story follows those new characters as they Uber to a new location and meet more new characters. And so on and so on, all set during a single night.

It’s an additive improv form similar to and inspired by the Richard Linklater film Slacker with the audience providing the locations for the characters to visit.

The cast includes co-directors Greg Hohn and Steven Warnock, Anoo Tree Brod, Juliet Kaplan, and Steve Scott along with guests Lindsay Harvath and Will Purpura. Jenn Evans handles the technical end of the show.

April

21 Public performance, Past Present, The ArtsCenter, 300-G E. Main St., Carrboro (8 pm). Buy tickets!

Transactors Improv winds up its season April 21 at The ArtsCenter with Past Present, a show about how childhood and adulthood are inextricably linked. The two-act performance is improvised from audience suggestions.

“Who we were as kids largely determines who we are as adults,” says director Greg Hohn. “Our childhoods presage our social, professional, and family lives as we move with or react against the forces that shaped us.

“Of course, in typically weird Transactors fashion, we will start with adult characters and then try to figure out who they must have been as children.”

The cast for Past Present includes Anoo Tree Brod, Greg Hohn, Juliet Kaplan, Bart Hubbard, Steve Scott, Steven Warnock, and Jane Allen Wilson. Jenn Evans handles lights and sound.
