ABOUT THE FORM –
by Patrick Babbitt
“Pretty Flower” is a form that centers around a group scene. Two (or more) actors break off and do a new scene to explore a character from the initial group game. Throughout the show we continue to return to the group scene as well as break off from it to explore characters. The center of the flower is the Group Scene and the pedals are the exploratory Two Person Scenes. It’s a great form for a group that is looking for another option than the Harold.
Patrick studied and performed at Second City and IO in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles where he performs at IO West with the House Harold team Tub Step. He is also part of the sketch show Hot Butt which performs at Second City Hollywood, UCB and the Comedy Central Stage. He can be seen on NBC’s Community as well as Newsreaders on Adultswim. He has taught workshops at Chicago Center of the Performing Arts, Lollapalooza, Indianapolis Fringe and at Theatre Sports Vancouver.
