We are so so so so (ad infinitum) happy to announce we are back live on stage at the Wardrobe Theatre from Monday 2nd November 2020 at 7.30pm. Yes, we know things may change and lockdowns may happen, but if they do we and the theatre have everything in place and Covid 19 safe for getting back to it as soon as we are able to again.
We have missed performing our fortnightly soap and cannot wait to kick off a brand new season. Come along and have a laugh and remember why, no matter what, live theatre is a vital part of life as we know it!
Get your tickets here. Tickets are sold in pairs – the theatre will be at half capacity and this is the best and safest way of doing things.
In the face of this thoroughly heinous global epidemic, we shall continue any way we can. We are bringing you creative content; videos of what our characters are getting up to in lockdown, quizzes, interviews with the cast and more. Connect with us by social media or by joining Neighbourhood Watch and let us keep laughing together!
For us to be able to continue to work and bring you this joyous content in these difficult times, we are in need of help. We would be very grateful for any donations you can give us, be it small, medium or absolutely mindbogglingly massive! Most of all, we hope you are safe and well and we thank you for staying Closer with us.
Join us for this year’s 26 hour impro marathon at The Bristol Improv Theatre in March, Friday 13th to Saturday 14th. Tickets on sale soon.

WHEN IN ROME (XXVI HOURS BC)
It is the age of empires and emperors, and the western world revolves and converges on one thriving metropolis: Rome. The Forum hums with the plots and machinations of power-hungry Senators and their hand-wringing advisors, while the marketplace buzzes and jostles with wealthy merchants and struggling farmers. To the East, the still-warm sand of the Colosseum is splattered with the blood of heroic gladiators, as the jeers and cries of the masses echo from pillar to pit. The city streets are a medley of shrines and gutters, Roman legionnaires on leave spilling out of every taverna, while aspiring poets sing their songs for pennies on every corner. Meanwhile on the Palatine Hill, the lofty vestal virgins perform their sacred rites to protect the city walls. Home to plebeians, politicians, scholars and soldiers, Rome is the original toga party – and everyone’s invited.
Steam ships, steam trains, steamed puddings, hilarious comedy, astonishing drama, endearing orphans and perhaps the odd catchy music hall number! We had a great December doing shows in Bath, Bristol, Clevedon, Corsham and Cornwall, January 9th-11th we shall be in Salisbury! Join Closer Each Day Company for something distinctly Dickensian and entirely improvised, created on the spot from YOUR suggestions!
Well and truly the world’s longest improvised story, we have now arrived at Season 18!
We left last season with Reg shooting himself in the face, Eliza revealed as a manipulative liar, Simpkins’ life hanging in the balance, Gina about to marry Fred but now with no money for the wedding, AJ and Candi in a new romance…what will happen next? Come along and find out!
