Beyond the Ridiculous Live Improvised Shows

— The Wardrobe Theatre
Come watch the April Fools! Beyond The Ridiculous return to The Wardrobe Theatre for a 3-night celebration of the human condition!
time:19:30
price: Tickets £10

Information:

Holly Stoppit's troupe of fools will be performing again this April, over the Easter weekend. If you haven't watched the fools play before, this is highly recommended - although we have no idea what will happen we can guarantee it will be “Both incredibly funny and incredibly moving” The Huffington Post.

Fooling is a solo improvisation form, where the fools use their own real life stories, feelings and thoughts as source material, choosing from a range of performance techniques, including storytelling, character-work, clowning, physical theatre, movement and live music to create audaciously authentic, gob-smackingly resonant, instant theatre. These fools have all trained with Holly Stoppit.

Featuring different performers every night.

£10 tickets available through The Wardrobe Theatre: http://thewardrobetheatre.com/livetheatre/beyond-the-ridiculous/

Audience Reactions:

“I felt like people had gone inside my brain and acted it out to make me feel better and now I love everybody again.”

“Violently hilarious, insightful, meandering journey through the funniest, lightest, darkest corners of the deranged comedic mind.”

“A lot of joy. Amazing, REAL engaging theatre. We’re talking about what theatre sets out to do. The origins of theatre. Untranslated, original theatre.”

“There wasn’t a moment that wasn’t just right.”

Beyond The Ridiculous are a collective of individual theatre makers, teachers, directors and performers who regularly train fooling together with facilitator / dramatherapist Holly Stoppit.
