Improvising in the style of particular genre or author has become a popular trend in Austin’s improv community (look for our feature on the Hideout’s improv Batman show soon). Usually, these shows are a labor of love, and False Matters is no exception. Creator/actor/director Shannon McCormick is a veteran improvisor and a longtime fan of sci-fi author Philip K. Dick, so creating a PKD-themed improv show seemed like a natural for him. The monkey in the wrench where this show is concerned, though, is that Philip K. Dick’s subject matter can be a little tricky. There’s plenty of androids and space ships in his work, to be sure, but there are also lots of plot twists and an often slippery grip on what’s real and what’s not. So for the next several weekends, the brave folks of Gnap! will attempt to construct those twists and turns on the fly, all for your entertainment.
