The Fauna of Penny Forest/The Verbs/Somewhat Theatre
The Nursery presents a night of improvised theatre – completely made up on the spot! Every show features a selection of talented improvisers from across the UK and beyond bringing you some of the most exciting unscripted theatre around. Watch them create everything from short scenes to an entire musical live on stage in front of your eyes!
Tonight’s show features...
Some kind of catastrophe has befallen the Fauna of Penny Forest. Will they rise up and overcome it, flee to pastures new, or die horribly? (You never know.) Come along and uncover/decide their fate in this colourful (mostly green) tale of triumph and trepidation, with an eclectic cast of slimy, scaly, feathered and furry friends, all chosen by you the audience!
The Verbs improvise a musical built around a grounded base reality. Inspired by an audience suggestion of a verb, we explore how far a ‘doing word’ can take you. Expect soaring melodies, silly gags, and jazz hands a-plenty!
Somewhat Theatre play with new approaches to improvising theatre, blending experimentation with downright silliness. A supergroup of some of the finest up-and-coming improvisers in London today, featuring members of Story Kitchen Impro, BIG NOW, Charm and Strange, Classic Andy, and countless others. Whether adapting your favourite stories into something new and remarkable or building an entire play from scratch, Somewhat Theatre are the very epitome of theatre (somewhat).
