The Bristol Improv Marathon

Fri 24th Mar - Sat 25th Mar 8pm

This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!

For the third year running Bristol Improv Theatre, Closer Each Day Company, The Wardrobe Theatre and Degrees of Error are joining forces to create Bristol Improv Marathon!

In 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.

This show brings together performers from all across the city and invited guests from further afield.

Bristol Improv Marathon 2017:

Check-Out Time At The Grand Hotel

Surrounded by soaring mountain peaks, forests and a glistening emerald lake sits the once iconic Grand Hotel, a remote get-away resort paradise that provided decadence, luxury and leisure for all who visited her.

But time has finally caught up with this timeless remnant and now the wallpaper in the ballroom is peeling, the spa's steam rooms have dried up, the felt tables in the billiard hall are torn and the brass buttons on the bell boy's blazer have faded.

This cut-off monument of vacations past has been earmarked for closure and as the concierge sheds a goodbye tear, The Grand Hotel is open to guests for one final twilight season.

"An impressive display of the actors sheer stamina and creativity. It was extremely entertaining to watch."
Stage Talk Magazine

"Carrying the flag of improvised theatre with talent and verve."
