Known for their instant agreement and group play, Princess Cake’s textured montage pushes the limits of the form in a barrage of scenes that juxtapose slow and fast-play, real and absurd, quiet and out-of-control. Having been trained by Upright Citizens Brigade, Miles Stroth and Annoyance Theater’s Emily Candini, Princess Cake’s play borrows from important elements of each train-of-thought in order to create an unpredictable, high-energy and satisfying improvisational piece.
