Improvised & Analyzed

Season 5

Superego Forgotten Classics: The Red Badge of Courage


A bold interpretation of the great works of literature. So bold in fact, nobody here even bothered to read them. On each episode, our players will improvise a famous work of fiction, one with which they’re not at all familiar. They’ll be given only the book’s title, its first and last lines, and the names of its characters. The rest is up to them.

Please enjoy James Bladon, Matt Gourley, Mark McConville, and Paul F. Tompkins’s interpretation of The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane. Music by James Bladon, Narration by Jeremy Carter.
