Following runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, Impromptu Shakespeare and The Maydays Happily Never After appear for one night only at the Omeara!
Bursting with love, poetry, comedy, tragedy, mistaken identity and everything in-between, Impromptu Shakespeare brings you an entirely new and unique Shakespeare play inspired by audience suggestions, to delight Shakespeare nerds and newbies alike. Featuring a cast of leading theatrical and comedic improvisers, they’ve performed five critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and three at the Bristol Shakespeare Festival.
‘Side-splittingly hilarious’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com)
‘It’s intelligent, it’s funny, it’s all of the adjectives for brilliant’ ***** (Pocketsizetheatre.com)
‘Shakespeare from the hip; ingenious and very funny’ (Will Gompertz, BBC Arts Editor)
Happily Never After
A twisted, gothic musical tale inspired by Tim Burton and the Brothers Grimm. Starting with your spooky suggestion, these award-winning improvisers weave a fantastical tale dripping with black comedy, gut-clenchingly playful characters and haunting live music that’s different every time. Following sell-out shows across Europe, this new deliciously dark hit marks The Maydays’ 14th year at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
