Honest Deception 

The Friday and Saturday 7 pm shows each feature the truly phenomenal headlining duo - Rebecca Northan and Joe Bill. Rebecca's massively successful shows "Blind Date," "Legend Has It," and "Undercover" are three of the biggest improvised hits in Canadian history. Joe is one of the most beloved figures in American Improv - and his famous good-natured style has made him an improv legend in the USA and beyond.

These two experienced improvisers have always known about each other but never played together - until now! They met at the International Theatresports Institute Festival in Dubai, and it became abundantly clear to them that they needed to play together somewhere and VOILA! The Ocean State Improv Festival is the location for this magical meeting. 

 

They come from two different schools of improvisation, but together they show that the way you play with, listen to, support, and create together is still the same.

Don't miss this incredible pair!

Performances: Fri, June 8 at 7 pm and Sat, June 9 at 7 pm
