Brown Bag List

When we as the Drama Dragons perform improvised scenes and skits, our main goal is to empty our minds and come up with lines and stories as organically as possible.  However, while we try to avoid overthinking and planning of our scenes, we realize that we still need to keep in mind that some subject matter might cause offense to audience members or is just inappropriate to joke about.  Our “Brown Bag List” is the list of topics that we will NOT bring up in an improv scene or game.  It is as follows:

  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Transphobia
  • Sexual assault
  • Ableism
  • Hitler/Nazis/anti-Semitism
  • Fat shaming/body shaming
  • Death of family members
  • Heavy alcohol/ drug use
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Self harm/ suicide
  • Politics
  • Covid-19
  • Slurs
  • Religious intolerance
  • Murder/Weapons used with the intention of murder

If any of these items are brought up in an improv scene, we will stop the scene, apologize, and restart.  This list will be read out loud before any improv practice session.  If you have any items that you think should be added to our Brown Bag List, please contact Tyler Appleby at:   or   253-620-0065
