Unbridled: Improvised Jilly Cooper

‘Unbridled’ brings improvisation inspired by the books of Jilly Cooper to the London stage in January 2019, as part of the Nursery Originals new year season.

Set in an idyllic world of show-jumping, huge country houses, and a variety of animals and posh people behaving very badly, the tone of this show will be extremely silly, tongue in cheek and please note there is likely to be sexual content in this show so please do not apply if that (or wearing Jodhpurs) is likely to make you feel uncomfortable.

Auditions will be held on the 25th of November.

Improvised Play

A weeklong intensive rehearsal process and four shows exploring improvised one and two-act plays, inspired by the work of Pgraph and the Hideout theatre. We’ll work to develop a common language of theatricality within an ensemble by reading/watching a handful of plays and improvising in the styles of the playwrights, keeping elements that bring us joy and discarding those that don’t. With a focus on grounded scenework and holding a narrative structure lightly, we’ll develop an ensemble performance that’s engaging and dynamic.

Auditions will be held on the 15th and 17th of December.

Nursery Spring Ensembles

The Nursery Ensembles are groups rehearsing in the Nursery ethos of player empowerment, emotional connection and freeform silliness. We are looking to expand the Nursery family to include a load of new players. Both ensembles will be directed by Artistic Director Jules Munns.

There are opportunities for those of all abilities. The mainstage ensemble is open to all those with a few years of improv experience, looking to expand and bed in their skills. The student ensemble is a pathway towards the mainstage ensemble and a grounding in the techniques and skills necessary to play in Nursery Original shows.

Auditions for both ensembles will be held on the 16th December  1pm-5pm
