Bristol Improv Marathon 2019
26 hours non-stop | over 30 performers | 1 truly epic live improvised play!
Performed at Bristol Improv Theatre NOT The Wardrobe Theatre
Now in its fifth year, Closer Each Day Company in association with Bristol Improv Theatre and The Wardrobe Theatre presents Bristol Improv Marathon! 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!
2019 theme: CHANNEL 26 (HOURS)
The lights blink, the boom mic bobs out of view, the cameras are ready. Make up bustle off-set in a cloud of nose powder. The autocue runs, the countdown begins and we’re live in five, four, three… Welcome to Channel 26: the cafeteria is populated with breakfast news presenters, camera operators and fake-blood soaked hospital drama extras. Quiz show contestants hover nervously in the lobby while runners fetch endless polystyrene cups of coffee. This season’s hottest reality TV producer is busting balls in the control room. It’s where dreams are made… if your dreams happen to be local news.
“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.”
