RECESS: Really Excellent Classroom Enhancement through Silliness and Satire

RECESS is Playground’s educational outreach program that uses improvisation, interactive theater games, and laughter to introduce children (and sometimes adults!) to theater and opens doors for creative self-expression. RECESS entertains audiences at the Playground with a mix of long and short-form improvisation and performs monthly at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
