FOR ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY Patti Stiles joins the cast of Bristol’s cult comedy hit, ‘Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera’!

It’s Christmas time in Newtown and ’tis the season to be jolly…or is it?

Patti Stiles has been called the Queen of Improvisation, and in this workshop she challenges performers to look outside traditional gender roles when creating characters.

Instant Wit! The best in improvised comedy. Fresh and inventive, each show throws up new nuggets of hilarity crafted by a company of the highest calibre. It’s a pick-me-up tonic with unexpected twists and a dash of sauce.

The Bristol Improv Theatre’s mission is to be an institution of spontaneous, collaborative, and creative theatre, a resource for ambitious artists and audiences, and a home for all those whom improvised work touches.
