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.”
Bristol 24/7

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

Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera follows one continuing storyline that unfolds through every scene, episode and season of the show, and each actor always plays the same recurring character. Nothing is rehearsed, premeditated or predetermined, instead scenes are set up for the audience (and performers) via a live voice-over from an off-stage director (who is also improvising). Before every performance, audience members are supplied with a sheet containing previous episode synopses and a character profile list.
