Directed by: Jason Tyne

Horse Trade presents A Rising Sun Performance Company production of SPORKNOTES Conceived and Directed by Jason Tyne A team of highly unskilled non-academics perform improvised abridged versions of the great works of literature as chosen by the audience based on nothing more than an unabridged plot summary.
After sold out performances at FRIGID New York, RSP is happy to present “Sporknotes” for ongoing monthly performances! Sporknotes is a 45 Minute set of Intellectual mockery and Literary blasphemy, set in motion by audience suggestions of both Classic & Obscure Literature, the troupe of improvisers and actors bring the stories to life with little to no knowledge of the story line, guided only by online student study guides!

Join us as the world's foremost experts on literature culled from the area's finest bars, subway stations and unemployment lines gather to adapt & improvise the greatest works of literature live on stage for optimal audience confusion.

Tickets: $8

"Hats off to the whole cast, who never failed to roll with the punches, even when they were below the belt...If you are in the mood for thumbtack sharp improv wit, all under the guise of a literary roundtable, then check it out...Let's just say, it takes deliciously sick minds to come up with this stuff, and its pure delight to go along for the ride"
Mary Hilton Newbie NYC

"Big strong laughs continued throughout this show, and that's probably reason enough to go see it...There are some very talented players in this group and I'd love to see more of them"
