DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES…the play has been replaced by an improv comedy show – starting 17th August 2.30pm. Same slot, different meat.

MissImp in Action is the show that Nottingham-based improv troupe MissImp perform at their monthly residency at The Glee Club in Nottingham.  It’s a fast paced shortform improv show with a mix of games (think “Whose Line Is It Anyway”) and “open” scenes where all the players have to work with is an audience suggestion.  There are no scripts.  It’s made up in front of your eyes.

“Bizarre, funny and enthralling” – Nottingham Evening Post

HR’d Day’s Night is a comedy play written by MissImp member Lloydie and this August you can see it at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Nottingham’s MISSIMP are bringing 8 days of bad management, terrible cabaret acts and dysfunctional characters to the FRINGE in HR’D DAY’S NIGHT, a new comedy play by James “Lloydie” Lloyd at LAUGHING HORSE @ THE COUNTING HOUSE (13th – 20th August. 14:30)

HR'd Day's Night - 13th - 20th Aug

This play revolves around TRISH who is an HR wage slave by day and the compere of a spectacularly awful cabaret club by night.  Despite her cabaret night being filled with some of the most inappropriate acts known to man, it’s still a preferable way of earning money to  her day job working for a horrendously unprofessional HR manager in an accountancy firm.

The play is directed by West End professional Martin Berry (Blood Brothers, Joseph) who believes the show’s sense of the ridiculous is what makes it so funny. “There is something we all recognise in the hell of the HR office, and when this is set against the trauma of bad cabaret and terrible chat up lines, it’s impossible not to laugh.  The piece is a lovely mix of the surreal and the painfully familiar.”

HR’D DAY’S NIGHT has a cast from Nottingham and is a co-production between the writer and MISSIMP, Nottingham’s improvised comedy troupe.  More than half the crew perform with MISSIMP and a large portion of the script comes from character improvisations done by the cast.

HR’D DAY’S NIGHT had two Nottingham previews and was described by Andy Goulding of Mercia FM as being “A ridiculous romp that can’t fail to make you laugh”
