Questions, sometimes referred to as Questions Only, is an Acting Improv game. This game is taken from Tom Stoppard's play, "Rozencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead", in which the two main characters play the game to pass the time. This game originated from "Questions Only" from Whose Line is it Anyways?


2 actors, who are repeatedly replaced by audience members.

How does it work?

Two actors stand in the middle of the circle and have a conversation purely through asking questions. This usually nullifies whatever acting ability they have due to the intense concentration required. Hesitations, using the same question (or nearly the same question) twice in a row, or replying to a question such as, "Is that Frank Wang behind you?" with "Is it?" gets a player "out," and s/he sits back down. Then, another person takes his/her place.
