Neil + 1 | | Saturday 9 November 2019

Will you be my +1?

Join Irish improviser, Neil Curran, as he takes a random audience member on a narrative journey into what their life could have been like had they made different choices.  From love to career to family to last Saturday’s night down the pub, follow us down the rabbit hole as we enter a world filled with drama, laughter and everything in between…

Our lives are enriched by the stories we hear and the experiences we have.  What happens when we mix those two worlds together?  Neil takes a volunteer from the audience to co-star in his show – someone who has never performed on stage before or even taken an improv class.  Neil and his guest have a chat about what makes the world goes round, which forms inspiration for the performance.  The audience volunteer is invited to be in the show, not as supporting guest or as a token cast member, but as the star of the show.  The audience member is free to do and say whatever they want in the show, even if they choose to just sit back and say nothing, there is no pressure.  Neil will help guide both the guest and the audience on a narrative journey where we explore the life we could have had if we took a different path.  From love, to work to the any ‘what-if’ we may have, what unfolds offers moments of comedy and touching moments as improv becomes our doorway to our hearts and souls!
