Spring is coming. And it will be epic at Washington Improv Theater.

Dive into adventure with WIT’s Debut of Day of Thones, a riff on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Conceived by Mary Lauran Hall and Michael Hendrix, Day of Thrones makes the bravado of the fantasy phenomenon TV show a little more relatable.

Every Sunday during the run, you can follow your heart with WIT’s romantic comedy Improv Actually. From meet-cutes to “happily ever after,” you’ll see the whole romance play out before you.
