Drop in any time! The characters introduce themselves at the start of every episode so you’ll always know what’s going on. Watch as many shows as you like or enjoy the ultimate theatrical marathon and take in the whole 50-hour epic! We will be running a 24-hour bar! A 50-hour improvised comedy set in Victorian England. What secrets lie in the shadows and fog of gaslit London? What mysteries lurk in the old music hall theatre? What horror hides in the castle overlooking the eerie Dudley Moors? Expect surreal comedy, dazzling drama and countless historical inaccuracies. Over 50 actors and musicians from all over the world will create some of the best improvised comedy and drama on the London stage for 50 hours of non-stop, madness and mayhem. As sleep deprivation kicks in, the players become too tired to censor themselves, resulting in a unique and euphoric live performance. Directed live by Dana Andersen; presented by award-winning theatre company The Sticking Place and Canadian improv legends Die Nasty. ‘Fearsomely able improvisers.’ The Financial Times
