May the Third Be With You…

It’s A Trap! explores untold stories of the Star Wars universe, packed with Jedi, jokes and jawas.

A handful of audience suggestions creates a unique episode before your eyes – complementing and breaking the canon in unexpected and ingenious ways! Truly geeky, hilarious entertainment – this IS the show you’re looking for.

IT’S A TRAP! The Improvised Star Wars Show explodes out of hyperspace onto the main stage of the John Godber Centre on May 3rd (almost Star Wars day!). Perfect for fans of comedy and Star Wars alike, IT’S A TRAP! shares the untold, hilarious, and very definitely canonical (honestly!) tales that the movies missed out.

Intrepid Rebels? Got ‘em! Evil Empires? By the bucketful! Weird old space wizards? Take your pick – they come in red, green or blue. IT’S A TRAP! is a celebration of the most epic sci-fi franchise out there, inspired by suggestions from you, the audience.

IT’S A TRAP! is a Best Improv Show finalist at Leicester Comedy Festival 2022, and has left audiences on the funny side of the Force, up and down the country. Smart, sharp, geeky and packed with pop culture, you don’t need to know a thing about the Star Wars franchise to enjoy this show. Book your tickets right now through Nottingham Playhouse.
