Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera is the world’s longest improvised narrative having run at The Wardrobe Theatre fortnightly for over 8 years and more than 160 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. Think Twin Peaks meets League of Gentlemen via Eastenders; a soap opera packed with drama, comedy, romance and farce – hilarious and uplifting and the cult hit of Bristol.

“Quick-witted, very watchable ensemble, razor-sharp in timing and delivery. ”
★★★★ Stage Talk

“Funny, inventive, fast-paced and sparkling. Loved it!”
David Lloyd, BBC Screenwriter (Doctors, Eastenders)

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

“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.”
