Presented by The Unnamed Improv & Real Positive Poles
The Unnamed Improv and Real Positive Poles are proud to present an enthralling experience in improvised theatre: two haunting shows set in the historic Crypt of St John in the Walls.
Like death, every improvised show is completely unplanned and will happen only once. So, join us for a unique, unscripted horror experience the way it should be done: in a literal crypt.
The shows are:
Shadows over improv
A crypt; A dark underground place where sometimes bodies lay buried. Shadows Over Improv; a dark unscripted play where sometimes secrets lay buried, the knowledge of which may bring madness – if you’re lucky! The Unnamed have been purveying improvised theatrical tales of cosmic horror since 2014 and tonight you will witness a story inspired by cult horror writer HP Lovecrcraft spontaneously unfold before your eyes. Just try to forget about those bodies.
After Dusk; Improvised Tales from The Twilight Zone
You walk into a theatre but find yourself in a crypt. There’s a show on but none of the actors know their lines, because this show hasn’t been written yet. Every night is opening night. A nightmare or a dream? Who’s to say? Up ahead there’s a sign. We take a turning through your imagination and arrive at your final destination: An improvised twist on cult classic The Twilight Zone.
**Please note that the Crypt has no toilet facilities of its own, however, we have arranged to share them with the nearby Quay Street Diner. They have a wonderful range of food and drink available so if you’re looking to get something to eat before the show or to have a drink afterwards we would highly recommend them!**
