For eleven years, the members of the Commune have reigned as big fish in the small pond of the New York improv theater world, while working menial jobs day after day to support themselves and returning home to shared, run-down apartments. The tight-knit group kills onstage night after night with fluid performances, but they are waiting for their big break. When scouts from a hit TV show come to a performance looking for talent but only choose two performers, the dynamic of the group is tested. Relationships begin to crack as six best friends face the truth that not all of them will make it.
Funny, insightful and honest, Mike Birbiglia’s Don’t Think Twice shines a light on an all too common experience—failure.
