Closer Each Day | The Improvised Soap Opera


This performance is an improvised narrative which takes place every other Monday throughout April. It is the world's longest improvised narrative and is 100% unplanned, unscripted & unconventional cult comedy.

The show promises a spontaneous and unique theatrical experience performed by an array of local actors. Visit Bristol says 'Think Twin Peaks meets League of Gentlemen via Sunset Beach; a soap opera full of romance, fights, sci-fi and enough plot twists to melt your face'


Every other Monday starting on the 3rd April 2017
