I pity you
Improvisation game
Description: Using subtext to define characters and scenes dynamic.
Set-up: Two to five players or more going on stage as see fit.
Instructions: Players improvise a scene with clear and simple relationships and objectives while repeating a mantra in their head (i.e. "I am so happy"). They then replay the scene using a different mantra (i.e. "Where am I?" or "I pity you" etc.).
Variation 1: Give different mantras to different players.
Variation 2: Let players come up with their own mantras and have the group trying to guess at the end what their were.
