Jan 27th 2019 - Lady Margaret Hall, Simpkins Lee Theatre
We return with a rambunctious, glittering, improvised showpiece: The Improvised Cabaret. Using your suggestions to inspire each twist and turn, the live band and performers will invent, on the spot, a cabaret that has never been seen, nor will ever be seen again. Come, come, to the traveling theatre show for one night only… with guest appearance from drag double act ‘The Dragprov Revue’.
2. AN IMPROVISED FUNERAL
Feb 20th 2019, Leicester Cathedral, part of the Leicester Comedy Festival
Join us at Leicester Cathedral for a completely improvised funeral! Taking your suggestions we will show the life and times of a fictitious individual. With vibrant vicars, horrendous hymns, and flashbacks to the life of the deceased. You'll die laughing as we urn your applause putting the fun into funeral. "refreshingly interactive" Opening Night "Devilishly funny" Daily Info "Dead Funny" Oxford Mail "Devastatingly funny" ***** Ed Fringe Review
April 4th 2019, The Wheatsheaf Pub, Oxford.
The Oxford Imps are famously family-friendly – but for one night only – nothing’s off limits! See the Imps like you’ve never seen them before, casting off their halos and embracing their inner devils! Expect a night of drinking, swearing and all round-naughtiness – and that’s just the audience… So steal some tickets, down your drinks, and choose a safe word – it’s about to get X rated! Fun for all the filthy minded… The venue is the upstairs of the Wheatsheaf pub. £5/6
May 17th 2019 - The Oxford Artisan Distillery, Oxford.
Join us in The Oxford Artisan Distillery (T.O.A.D) for an evening of country western mayhem. From hay bales and tumbleweeds to gunslinging outlaws and lily livered cowards, from cowboys and gamblers to bounty hunters and law abiding sheriffs. Expect gun toting, horse riding, saloon door swinging characters from the old west all based on your suggestion. Complete with live country music, this is a hilarious hoedown not to be missed.
5. WALKING TOUR
June 1st 2019 - Broad Street, Oxford.
Oxford is a city overflowing with walking tours, from historical guides to Harry Potter and Inspector Morse. For one day only we will take you on a walking tour of Oxford where the information will be... completely made up! Taking your suggestions and forcing our finest improvisers to make up facts on the spot we will walk you around the dreaming spires informing you of the lesser-known and more questionable facts. A comedy walking tour for the fake news generation.
June 23rd 2019 - Magdalen College School Playing Grounds.
Sail with us on the banks of the Cherwell river for an improvised pirate adventure! Get on board, raise up the main sheet and walk the plank as we explore the seven seas! As part of the Oxford Festival of Arts. Far from arrrr rated this is fun for all the family as we take your suggestions to steer us into stormy waters. Join us on the island of Magdalen College School, home to Oxford’s largest Arts Festival for one night only on the atmospheric setting of the banks of the river Cherwell.
7. Film Noir
July 6th 2019 - Didcot Railway Centre
Taking your suggestions we will improvise a brand new story in the style of a film noir, so hop aboard the steam train and head on over to the big city. These streets are filled with murder, crime and injustice. With gangs around every corner, spies in every train carriage and femme fatales in every smokey jazz club. Expect more monologues and more cigarettes than is healthy. Featuring steamy love affairs, steamy streets, steamy steam trains and steamy… steam.
