Following May’s sell-out shows on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain, Closer Each Day Company are thrilled to be back on board with their brand new show, Pilot Season: The Improvised Next Big Thing!
 
In a world of boxsets, catch-ups and digital content, this is a show you can’t stream or download and it will never be repeated. You, the audience, are TV executives about to watch the first screening of a pilot episode of a new series. You decide the direction in the opening moments and at the end of the pilot, you decide whether to ‘option’ it*.
 
In this show there is no Pause, Rewind or Record: there is only Play. There could be love, lust, fear, despair, mild annoyance – anything can happen in the quest for The Next Big Thing!
 
Closer Each Day Company features some of Bristol’s hottest theatre talent and are the creators of the longest improvised narrative in the world. Join them as they bring their signature mix of high stakes drama and hilarious comedy to this one-off show that you need to watch!

Tickets include entry to the ship from 6.30pm, so why not pop along before the show and have a look around?
 
There will also be a bar on board serving wine, beer and cider.

*If you joined us for the show at The Bristol Improv Theatre in August then think of this as an extended edition because this time you could potentially watch TWO pilots! Alternatively, if the audience chooses to ‘option’ the first pilot, we’ll create the second episode of the series after the interval! Who knows what will happen?
