Steamed: A Dickensian Improvised Chistmas Tale

Our brand new show is coming to Brunel’s SS Great Britain for 5 nights in December 2018 and it is just the thing for a great festive evening out!

Hilarious comedy, astonishing drama, endearing orphans, steam ships, steam trains, figgy puddings and perhaps the odd catchy music hall number! This Christmas join Closer Each Day Company aboard Brunel’s SS Great Britain for something festive, Dickensian and entirely improvised, created on the spot from YOUR suggestions!
Come along for a right old knees up and enjoy improv in the time of cholera!
9th/10th/11th/21st/22nd December at 7pm, in two acts with an interval, finished by 9pm. There is a bar on board selling wine, beer, cider and, of course, mulled wine and maybe even mince pies.

Closer Each Day Company hosts the one and only PATTI STILES!

The  international Number One in improvised theatre, our mentor and Spiritual Godmother, Patti Stiles, is coming very soon! She will be doing two public workshops on Saturdays 13th and 20th October, and performing with us on Monday 15th October at 8pm at the Wardrobe Theatre in the next episode of Closer Each Day.

If you are an actor, improviser, or performer of any kind, who is interested in upping your game, adding to your skill set, or putting something worthwhile on your CV, and you want to have the most fun possible with the best teacher of improvisation on the planet…come to one or both of her masterclasses on those Saturdays!

If you are any of the above, or just someone who loves a great show, see you Monday 15th!

Bristol’s hottest theatre talent melts minds and captures hearts with their brilliant, truthful and dynamic improvisation; join them in the fantastic setting of this Bristol landmark, as they bring their signature mix of high stakes drama and hilarious comedy to this one-off show that you need to watch!
