We are looking for some new cast members! If you haven’t seen us before, we’re a long form improv company who buckle on the Bard’s britches to improvise plays in the style and spirit of Shakespeare.
Since 2013 we've done four critically-acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe. We currently have a monthly residency at the Nursery Theatre in London, and have done a SW tour this year including multiple sell-out shows at the Bristol Shakespeare Festival and Stroud Theatre Festival. Looking ahead to 2018 we hope to do a full run in Edinburgh - amongst other things - so we are expanding the company to be able to achieve this.
Our style of performance aims to honour the emotional depth and linguistic beauty of the Bard; however, our approach is light-footed and joyful - our tongues are firmly in our cheeks.
For more of a feel of what we are like, have a click around our website . We have some lovely reviews you can take a look at, and we have some shows coming up in London and Birmingham you can catch.
We are looking for experienced long form improvisers who can act, or actors who can improvise. A solid understanding of, and grounding in Shakespeare is essential.
Minimum requirements are:
Auditions will be held on Saturday 13th January 2018, 1-5pm in central London. Please send a CV or bio with a covering letter detailing any relevant experience and what draws you to us to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Saturday 16th December.
We look forward to hearing from you!
