Transaction scene

A transaction scene is a type of scene that can be challenging especially for new improvisers.

An attempt to emulate real-life makes a transaction scene brief. Attempts to elongate the scene can be unnaturally forced or complicated.

To make a transaction work, the characters need more details beyond the transaction. Instead, they can have some relationship. Bringing in details from real life can help an organic scene find something. Beginning improvisers generally are better off avoiding transactions and focusing on characters with more developed relationships.
