About This Course

This is part of our Performing Improv programme, which focuses on the skills to perform improv on stage.

In this course, we take a look at the bigger picture of developing an improvised theatre show.

When does the story start? Where should it go next? Most importantly, how do you decide this in the moment?

We'll train your skills in storytelling and stagecraft, until you're ready to create a fully-narrative improv show!

At the end of the course there will be a showcase event to apply the skills you have learnt.

This course takes place on Tuesday evenings. For other course times and locations please see our main Performing Improv page.
