The Noise Next Door’s Really, Really Good Afternoon Show (CKP)

By | Published on Saturday 19 August 2017

The Noise Next Door have a late night show as well, but this is their family-friendly afternoon show… with swords. It’s a typical improvised show, based on audience suggestions, although how the individual scenes fit into the overall story is extremely tenuous. When I saw them they told the story of “the search for the Gem of Eternal Peace”. This included the recreation of one audience member’s family Christmas, a song about a tax-evasion vlogger and one in which another audience member played all the props needed to reach a many-legged beast. The four cast members’ experience ensured consistent laughs for all ages, especially when dealing with some of the more unsuitable suggestions in front of the younger members of the audience.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 27 Aug.
