Roadkill buffet, MIT's "best and only" improvisation comedy group, is performing their new show, Intestine Ice Cream, this Saturday night.

The group has an interesting motto: If we suck, it's your fault. Though their December show was funny, its main problem resulted from the audience's awkward suggestions for skits. The group did well with what they had, but it was obvious that they were limited.

The Independent Activities Period show set a good trend by being much better - partly because they had a more benevolent audience, but mainly because the group looked more at ease. Having been through it twice before in so few months, Roadkill Buffet should be in top form this Saturday.

Dramashop's production of Escape From Happiness continues this Friday and Saturday in the Little Kresge Auditorium at 8 p.m. The story centers around a bizarre suburban family and takes place entirely in a kitchen. When the curtain rises, one of the daughter's husbands is beaten up and lying on the floor, and the circumstance around it are unclear.

The rest of the plot takes a while to sort out (nearly three hours), as do the family's other problems. With a great cast which builds on its energy with time, George F. Walker's story of emotions and conflict make even a long play worthwhile to watch.
