Unbridled – Improv inspired by the books of Jilly Cooper: ‘the doyenne of the posh bonkbuster’. Expect wild stallions, uncontrollable fillies (and horses too)! Set in an idyllic world of show-jumping and huge country houses, with a variety of animals and posh people behaving very badly while wearing jodhpurs, Unbridled is extremely silly, tongue in cheek and maybe just a little bit sexy. Directed by Heather Urquhart of The Maydays and The Showstoppers, you’d be a foal to miss it!
All the Normal People are a hand-picked selection of improvisers with a diverse range of trainings and backgrounds. With a combination of silliness and pathos and a string of special guests, off the cuff oddities and experimental formats, All the Normal People is an experiment in what happens when you give a group of normal people the stage and the power, without any of the responsibility. Normal doesn’t need to mean boring.
