Improvabunga – Some Sort Of Improv Show (Watch This Improv Troupe)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Prepare for genius, drama and deranged hilarity as Watch This invite you to follow them down the improvised rabbit hole that is ‘Improvabunga’. Each night six performers spontaneously drag a play (whose title, location and genre are chosen by you) from their imaginations onto the stage. An outstanding display of speed, wit and collective intuition results in a show that’s raucously funny and consistently entertaining. This troupe excels in crafting whatever’s thrown at them into a lucid tale with mad-cap coherence. As I watched a wild western romance based in the Northern Hebrides unfold, and as the first notes of ‘Caber-Tossing Man’ tinkled in, it struck me that you couldn’t make this stuff up. Oh wait…

theSpace on the Mile, until 24 Aug (not 11, 18, 25), 8.05pm.
