Harold Intensive with John Gallagher and John McInnes

Spend one Saturday with two of Bristol’s most experienced American long-form teachers, getting to know the Harold.

Saturday 21st September 10:00


Created by Del Close and Charna Halpern in the 1980s, the Harold is one of the oldest improv forms. It is the core form taught and performed at iO in Chicago, the UCB Theatre in New York, the Free Association in London and many other improv theatres around the world.

Flexible enough to hold either a tight sketch show or a slow burn one-act play, the Harold is ideal training for anyone looking to improve their scenework or hone their American-style longform skills.

This class teaches the training wheels structure and demonstrates the fundamental approach to scenework required to making an engaging 25-45min longform piece.
