IMPROVISATION

The heart of creative theatre

We always have a lot going on whether it's a night of one-act plays, a theatre trip, comedy and variety nights, an improvisation evening or our really popular annual quiz evening.

We always have room for new people to come and join us, whether they want to act or do something behind the scenes - we are a friendly,

So back I went to the drawing board, knowing that compared with MND I was already 6 months behind the curve. I’m not sure anyone realises how long the creative process works – maybe I overdo it, but I change my mind constantly about the way I want to present the play I’m directing. With a structured, modern play you don’t have to worry too much, the script tells you what to do , but when it’s Shakespeare you have to think about the interpretation because that gives you the whole structure and feeds into every little detail of the play the audience will ultimately see. If you’ve not done this before the auditions, the cast won’t know what they are doing and you are going to end up with a mess.
