Acts this month

Spin-a-Play

Insert Laughter Here present Spin-a-Play – a hilarious “brand new” comedy play is made up from scratch using your suggestions and the spin of a wheel. You get to decide how the play starts, continues, and even how it ends! Will the action hero save the day and get the girl of his dreams, or will he fail and doom himself to a life of mockery? Will the charismatic thief successfully steal the diamond in the heist she has been planning for decades, or will it all go hilariously awry? The possibilities are literally endless when the audience has the power of choice. One thing is guaranteed, we will Insert Laughter Here!

Enter Player 2

A video game, created and acted out live on stage! Follow the experiences of two players, as the game you devise unfolds before you. Whether they’re facing the Almighty Cepheus at the end of Astroworld, or decking each other in Punch-up Alley, this show is bound to be a critical hit!

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?!
