Think Shakespeare but funny. Soothplayers improvise a brand-new play that could have been written by the Bard (but was not) from nothing but a suggested title from the audience, all on the damned spot! They guarantee you will laugh or your money back.
Comedy? Tragedy? History? They can do it all. Soothplayers provide everything that four centuries of theatre-goers know and love. The show is fast-paced and action-packed, promising laughs and gasps in equal measure.
Soothplayers have received rave reviews for Completely Improvised Shakespeare. Each performance is a completely new work, using Shakespearean language, themes and style. Even the musical accompaniment is completely improvised!
The cast includes veterans of Melbourne’s premier improvisation troupes, including The Improv Conspiracy, Impro Melbourne and The Big HOO-HAA!. They deliver a high-quality, hilarious show that is guaranteed to be unlike anything else you will see this Festival!
