This Is Soap – The Improvised Soap Opera (C Theatre)

By | Published on Friday 2 August 2013

This comedy troupe crafts together an improvised soap opera entirely from audience suggestions. The cast, who also perform the always popular ‘Shakespeare for Breakfast’, flex their comedic muscles in this funny, anything-goes show, combining different personalities, accents, plot twists and surprise appearances. Onlookers are asked to invent character names to start the ball rolling and it can go anywhere from there, as each member displays great powers of comic observation and quick thinking. The unexpectedness of invented circumstances keep both the performers and the audience guessing what will happen next. As always with improv, results may vary, however, this team works seamlessly together and are constantly on their toes.

C, until 26 Aug (not 12), 1.15pm.
