Back on-board Brunel’s SS Great Britain!

On Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th September 2018, we are so excited to be back on this incredible ship with…

Pilot Season: The Improvised Next Big Thing

Following this May and last May’s sell-out shows on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain, Closer Each Day Company, the creators of Bristol’s cult comedy ‘Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera’, are thrilled to be back to present a brand new show.

In a world of boxsets, catch-ups and digital content, this a show that you can’t stream or download and that will never be repeated. You, the audience, are the TV executives about to watch the first screening of a pilot episode of a new series (the direction of which will be decided by you in the opening moments). In this show there is no Pause, Rewind or Record: there is only Play. There could be love, lust, fear, despair, mild annoyance – anything can happen!

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!

Show starts at 8pm, but arrive from 6.30pm to look around the ship and museum first. There is a bar serving beer, wine, cider and soft drinks. There will be an interval and the show finishes around 10pm. Hope to see you there!

Get tickets here.

The Great American Storybook

At the Bristol Improv Theatre on Friday 17th August, 8pm, John Lomas and Lindsey Garwood will spin a good ol’ yarn, a chapter from The Great American Storybook – with nothing more than to start them off than a couple of items they purloin from the audience. Their tale would warm even the stoniest of hearts, and make laugh even the sternest of dispositions. The Great American Storybook will be the first half in a Closer Each Day Company double bill at the Bristol Improv Theatre, followed by Pilot Season: The Improvised Next Big Thing.  What a night!

Q&A with Closer Each Day Company

After the Season Finale on 2nd July 2018, at 9.15pm, Backline will be holding a Q&A session with us. Backline is a fantastic local organisation which supports improvisers, offers one to one coaching, holds events with dynamic speakers and instructors to illuminate and educate, and gives people the chance to ask diverse performers, improvisers and theatre makers what makes them tick. Please do join us at The Wardrobe Theatre at 9.15pm on 2nd July, ask us anything and we shall answer!

If you are seeing the show beforehand, there is no extra charge, you can also come just for the Q&A without a ticket – but there will be the chance to make a donation of your choice, to keep the wonderful Backline going. Thank you!
