Steamed: A Dickensian Improvised Christmas Tale

8th Dec 2019 - 9th Dec 2019
7pm | £15 (£12 conc.) | Performed at Brunel's SS Great Britain

Steam ships, steam trains, steamed puddings, hilarious comedy, astonishing drama, endearing orphans and perhaps the odd catchy music hall number! This December join Closer Each Day Company aboard Brunel’s SS Great Britain for something distinctly Dickensian and entirely improvised, created on the spot from YOUR suggestions!

Closer Each Day Company, creators of Bristol’s cult comedy, Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera, bring their dynamic and addictive brand of theatre to this new show, co-produced with The Wardrobe Theatre. Come along for a right old knees up and enjoy improv in the time of cholera!

“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

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