An improvised hero’s journey. The ensemble encounters mythical beasts, mad gods, and trickster spirits in a transformational epic of self-discovery. Never the same performance twice–the audience discovers how Joseph Campbell’s theory of the monomyth could have a thousand faces and still be written anew.

Since its opening in 2005, Philly Improv Theater (PHIT) has been the heart of Philadelphia’s nationally recognized comedy scene. PHIT produces over one thousand performances annually, with shows on multiple stages, seven nights a week, every week of the year.
