Saturday 21st November
The Bristol Improv Theatre presents a series of new shows that respond creatively to the challenges of social distancing in live performance. A line up of talented local companies and artists embrace the flexibility of improvisation to create work that is imaginative, immediate, whole-hearted and fun.
REACT is a homecoming for Bristol’s improvising community and a celebration of the resilience of live entertainment, under any conditions.
International improv veterans Caitlin Campbell (Murder, She Didn’t Write) and Douglas Walker (Aaand Now For Something Completely Improvised) join forces to present a masterclass in improvised storytelling.
Taking their inspiration from the entire gamut of human knowledge (a Wikipedia random article suggestion), they use a smorgasbord of theatrical techniques to tell a brand new story.
The Torville and Dean of improv promise an evening of entertainment that will be funny, imaginative and completely wonderful.
Health and Safety Statement:
We are committed to making our return to live shows as safe and reassuring as possible whilst still providing the excitement and magic of a live theatre experience.
We have renovated our theatre into a cabaret style seating arrangement, with audience numbers capped at 52 so that social distancing can be observed.
In line with the new laws , wearing a mask is a prerequisite for entry to the building (unless seated at your table) and we now operate a table service system for our bar which stops serving at 10pm.
Hand gel and washing facilities are readily available around the building, including contactless hand sanitisers.
A full list of what we’re doing to make the building Covid-Secure and what we expect from audience members is available here.
