4:00pm Category: Shows[4:30pm] The Maydays present: Happily Never After at Edinburgh Fringe 2017
Description:
A theatrical revolution is happening! The Maydays have been quietly gathering an army of fans around the world with their exceptional talent for creating skin-prickling theatre from nothing. Now they are dazzling audiences with their hugely popular and deliciously dark musical show, Happily Never After. Created from a single audience suggestion, The Maydays weave a playful tale, full of black comedy and haunting songs, in a loose homage to cult director Tim Burton’s gothic style, with influences from Lemony Snicket, the Brothers Grimm and dark fairy tales. After sell-out shows at Edinburgh 2016, Barcelona 2016 and VAULT 2017 Festivals, Happily Never After is a word-of-mouth success that raises the bar on what’s possible with improvised theatre. “Happily Never After is hilarious!” Colin Mochrie (Whose Line is it Anyway?) – Edinburgh Festival 2016 “‘Certainly worthy of Burton” Chortle – VAULT Festival 2017 “As funny as hell” **** Breaking the Fourth Wall – VAULT Festival 2017

7:00pm Category: Classes[7:00pm] The Nursery/Maydays Improv Drop In Class
Description:
What is it? An afternoon of improvisation fun! Working on the skills at the heart of improvisation, such as listening, making offers and committing to your choices, each week you will go a little further into improvisation, meeting new people and working with different teachers. Every class is stand alone, so you can come along to one, or be there every week! Who is it for? The drop-in is a wide ability class, so everyone is welcome! It is ideal for people trying improvisation for the first time, or more experienced players who want to work on core skills. The atmosphere is accessible, fun and non-judgemental and you will find yourself doing things you never thought you could. What will I get out of it? Each week you will become more confident and relaxed onstage, taking more risks and feeling more creative and liberated. You will learn the attitudes and ideas that make improvisation work. You will also find these things translating into your everyday life. You will be more confident with people, more creative in your work and better able to respond to stress. What have previous students said? “A great place to spend a fun Saturday afternoon with a great bunch of people and learn improv from some of the best teachers in the country.” “A very relaxed and non-judgemental atmosphere which allowed everyone to learn from each other. Lots of fun!” You can secure your place by clicking here to book in advance online, or drop in on the day*. Class is capped at 14, and we cannot guarantee a place if you do not book in advance.
