The brand new show from Extempore Theatre,
creators of Olivier Award-Winning West End hit
Showstopper! The Improvised Musical.
Veteran improvisers Alan Cox and Sean McCann present Rhapsodes, a unique, ground-breaking two-‐man show that pushes the boundaries of improvised performance.
Inspired by the bardic competitions of Ancient Greece, where poets would compete for prizes, Rhapsodes is a completely unplanned show channelling the past 3,000 years of literature, from Homer to Beowulf, Pinter to Poe, Nostradamus to Dr Seuss.
At the heart of Rhapsodes is the conjuring of a lost Shakespeare play, created from the stories and experiences of the audience.
A combination of improvised theatre, stand-‐up, vaudeville, poetry-‐slam and seance, Rhapsodes is like nothing you've ever seen or heard.
"This might just be my favourite thing on the entire planet!"
