Acts this month

Improvabunga

In a world where movie plots are getting too predictable, one improv show dares to break the mould. You choose the genre, the subgenre, the setting and the title and they will do the rest, creating a totally improvised show brimming with all your favourite movie tropes. Whether it’s through the twists and turns of a gangster thriller, the heroes and villains of a superhero epic, or the heartbreaks and makeovers of a high school romance, Improvabunga will have you on the edge of your seat and in tears – of joy? of sadness? of laughter? Who knows! Featuring improvised songs, live musical accompaniment and four audience buzzers used to control the performers, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

Flower Freedom

Flower Freedom are an act born in a rooftop bar in Berlin, and native to Nottingham. Follow two characters through time as they experience a (potentially) life changing moment! Emotionally powerful and intense – but will it have a happy ending?

Press X to Smash

A select group of improvisors from across the Nottingham scene will perform a delightful selection of improv games for you. They’ll explain the rules, but who knows if they’ll stick to them?!
