Playwright Dan O’Brien and actors Tim Cummings and Brian Henderson join improvisers Mike Hanford, Sean Conroy, and Don Fanelli for a theatrical episode of improv4humans! Dan, Tim, and Brian present selections from Dan’s new stage play “The House in Scarsdale” that inspire scenes about extreme colorblindness, a real estate agent encouraging property damage, and a pool enthusiast romance. Later, a psychic explores familial boundaries, and Don asks a stranger to be his grandmother.

Earlier this week, I was thinking to myself that it's been too long since Sean Conroy's been on the show. Glad he's back!
