An Improvised Gothic Musical Tale

A theatrical revolution is happening! The Maydays have been quietly gathering an army of fans around the world with their exceptional talent for creating skin-prickling theatre from nothing. Now they are dazzling audiences with their hugely popular and deliciously dark musical show, Happily Never After. Created from a single audience suggestion, The Maydays weave a playful tale, full of black comedy and haunting songs, in a loose homage to cult director Tim Burton’s gothic style, with influences from Lemony Snicket, the Brothers Grimm and dark fairy tales.

“Happily Never After is hilarious!”
Colin Mochrie – Whose Line is it Anyway?

About The Maydays

The Maydays are a five-star, multi award winning improvisational comedy company with 12 years of live performance experience under their belt. They regularly perform at the Komedia in Brighton and The Miller in London and at regular large-scale corporate and private events. They’ve headlined sell-out international improvisation festivals from Dublin to Barcelona. The Maydays also opened for world renowned act TJ & Dave, for their one and only UK performance at the Waterloo East theatre in October 2014.
The Maydays have trained globally in improvisation at New York’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade and at the iO Theatre in Chicago (which spawned talents in Tiny Fey, Mike Myers and Amy Poehler to name a few). The former Associate Artistic Director of the iO Theatre, Jason Chin, described them as, ‘the vanguard of British longform improvisation.’
