Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera is the longest improvised narrative in the world. This spontaneous soap opera is Bristol’s cult comedy show; every episode is dramatic, hilarious and entirely improvised. Who knows what’ll happen next? The cast certainly don’t!
Folksy’s wonderful production is filled with live music, colourful characters, enchantment and a little touch of magic. Bring along your picnics, blankets and folding chairs.
Discovered amongst Bristol’s forgotten memorabilia, the Natural Theatre Company has ‘unearthed’ an early work of Shakespeare, written when Will was a young whippersnapper. This unpublished play features early sketches of his most iconic characters, first drafts of famous scenes…and just a little bit of nonsense.
Set in a near-future, post-global ecological collapse, Quandary Collective’s Richard II is a bloodthirsty outdoor exhibition. This fearless adaptation blends Shakespeare’s text with visceral movement and live electronic music, while you see the politics of old and young clashing in maintaining England’s fragile peace. Join us as we ask what it takes to lead a country, why gender matters in positions of power and explore the price we pay for wanting autonomy over our lives.
After completely sold-out runs in 2018 and 2019, the team that brought you ‘Hamlet: The Musical’ and ‘Macbeth: The Musical’ take on Shakespeare’s most dysfunctional family! Shakespeare’s broody tragedy takes an outrageously silly turn, as six actors deploy wittily rewritten pop classics, chaotically daft comedy, and an array of highly haphazard props to recount the tale of a megalomaniac family.
Shakespeare’s classic comedy of love and intrigue, magic and mayhem, is brought to life by family favourites Quantum Theatre in their bewitching new production of the Shakespeare classic.
