26 hours non-stop. Over 30 performers. 1 truly epic improvised play!

Now in its fourth year, Closer Each Day Company in association with Bristol Improv Theatre and The Wardrobe Theatre presents The Bristol Improv Marathon!

Starting at 20:00 on Friday and proceeding non-stop for a staggering 26 hours, a team of intrepid performers will create an entirely improvised, entirely unscripted play using nothing but their skill, imagination and a hefty dose of caffeine.

The show brings together performers from all across the city and includes stars of hit shows such as Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera and Murder, She Didn't Write by Degrees of Error.

Pirates of the Severn Seas
Batten down the hatches, hoist the Jolly Roger and get ready for a swashbuckling adventure!

Be ye a loathsome landlubber or a scurvy sea dog, all aboard as we set sail into the big blue seeking fame and fortune. There's treasure to be buried and legends to be born across bustling port towns, majestic galleons and remote desert islands.

And when X marks the plot, no-one knows which pirates will be immortalised and which will end up in Davy Jones' Locker.

Tickets are £10 on an All You Can Watch basis. Admittance is subject to capacity limits in the theatre venue, and seating will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis for each 2 hour episode.
