Coffee, created By The Improfessionals Wednesday, December 8 · 8:30pm - 11:30pm Peniche Antipode face au 55 quai de la Seine, 19° arr, M° Riquet/Jaur├Ęs Paris, France (Last performance of 2010)

Coffee is an improvised show about people watching. The audience discovers a coffee bar frequented by a myriad of characters. Every character is created from a face drawn by an audience member before the show. A director guides the show and pulls characters out of the coffee bar to discover more about them and their personal story. Coffee is an original Improfessionals format created by Mark Jane. "It's a taste, an odour, a culture, a philosophy, a way of life, a feeling... but above all, it's people like you and me."
