Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera is the world’s longest improvised narrative having run at The Wardrobe Theatre fortnightly for over 7 years and nearly 150 episodes.
The show is a live, spontaneous and unique theatrical experience performed fortnightly by Closer Each Day Company and co-produced by The Wardrobe Theatre. Think Twin Peaks meets League of Gentlemen via Eastenders; a soap opera packed with drama, comedy, romance and farce – hilarious and uplifting and the cult hit of Bristol.
“Quick-witted, very watchable ensemble, razor-sharp in timing and delivery. ”

“Funny, inventive, fast-paced and sparkling. Loved it!”

“So consistently gripping it’s incredible to think it’s created off the cuff.”
“Crackling wit… Its unscripted nature gives it a raw, exciting edge missing from rehearsed theatre.”
“I left with aching cheeks from uncontrollable laughter induced by the cast’s impressive, and always comical, ability to improvise.”
