Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera is the world’s longest improvised narrative having run at The Wardrobe Theatre fortnightly for over 5 years and over 100 episodes.

The show is a live, spontaneous and unique theatrical experience performed fortnightly by Closer Each Day Company and co-produced by The Wardrobe Theatre. Join your favourite characters for this cult show, created on the spot by an array of local performers. Think Twin Peaks meets League of Gentlemen via Sunset Beach; a soap opera full of romance, fights, sci-fi and enough plot twists to melt your face.

“So consistently gripping it’s incredible to think it’s created off the cuff.”

“Crackling wit… Its unscripted nature gives it a raw, exciting edge missing from rehearsed theatre.”

“I left with aching cheeks from uncontrollable laughter induced by the cast’s impressive, and always comical, ability to improvise.”
