About Double D
Double D is a two-prov group founded by Nannette Deasy and Graceann Dorse, who met while writing and performing for the PITtv house team Simply Elegant. We perform two-prov (improv done by only two people) all over New York City, and any other city that will have us. We like to do long-form improv, especially monoscenes. We also like to create and perform hour-long improv shows that are kind of like plays, but fully improvised. Each performance is always different.
In 2017, we created SCRANTON BUCKETS for the Scranton Fringe Festival. An improvised horror/comedy play, SCRANTON BUCKETS tells the story of the old abandoned bucket factory that's being taken over by the online marketplace behemoth Piranha. But these buckets carry more than just a third-grader's vomit; they carry the ghostly secrets of the past, making your blood run cold and your skin turn... pail!
Our newest show is called REJECTS ANONYMOUS, which premiered at the 2018 Scranton Fringe Festival. Using prompts from the audience, Double D will bring to life your true stories of rejection and heartbreak, and present them in the setting of a 12-step meeting populated by characters created on the spot. And like any decent self-help meeting, there will be donuts!
Double D created an improvised comedy pilot self-titled DOUBLE D, which won Best Comedy at the 2015 Princeton Independent Film Festival.
