Join David Reed, Alison Thea-Skot, Suki Webster, Phil Whelans and a special guest TBA*...

...as they force themselves through a narrow slit in the veil that separates this world from the next and explore the life and recent death of a character you help to invent.

* Previous guests have included... Joseph Morpurgo (Edinburgh Best Newcomer Award Winner, Drunk History, Truthmouth, Odessa, Soothing Sounds for Baby), Charlotte Gittins (Austentatious, Grand Theft Impro), Briony Redman (The Free Association), Dylan Emery (Showstopper. Grand Theft Impro), Naomi Petersen (The Free Association), Liz Kingsman (Borderline, Power Monkeys, Hospital People, Massive Dad) Lauren Shearing (Showstopper) and Katy Schutte (The Maydays)

Three strangers have received a mysterious summons to take part in a séance. And so have you.

A voice is calling from beyond the grave! Who is it? We don’t know. What does it want? We don’t know. Why don’t we know? We don’t know...

...because everything about the deceased will be improvised... Like Derek Acorah or Psychic Sally, we’re making it up as we go along...

The prize for most enjoyable improv of the festival is certainly a hotly contested one. For our money, Séance Fiction would take home the biscuit. We’re oh so glad we were able to be a part of this very special hour. The Velvet Onion, Edinburgh 2016

David Reed - One third of monster hit sketch team The Penny Dreadfuls (two series and several one-offs on BBC Radio 4.) David has been on TV in such shows as Gary: Tank Commander, Fast and Loose, It's Kevin (which Phil was in too) and Father Figure. ‘David Reed is cool. He owns the room before the show even starts.’ ★★★★★ Fringe Review

Alison Thea-Skot - Starred in So On & So Forth (BBC Radio 4.) Nominated Best Actress at the 2014 British Independent Film Festival, Alison has worked everywhere - from Shakespeare's Globe to The Basil Brush Show* for the BBC. As an improviser, she guests with Chortle award-winners Austentatious. She is also a member of improv super-group the Free Association. Her two Edinburgh Festival shows, Some Like it Thea-Skot and It’s Thea Skot In Here (So Take Off All Your Clothes) received much acclaim and transferred triumphantly to London. ‘Brave, silly, a little bit unhinged and very, very funny.’ ★★★★★ Funny Women

Suki Webster - Comedy Store Player, Paul Merton's Impro Chum, Eddie Izzard's co-conspirator in Impro M.D. and One-Word Improv, and Ross Noble’s for his run of shows at the Cutty Sark. Suki has developed her own Impro Format, The Guest Speaker. ‘Suki Webster is hilarious.’ ★★★★ The Guardian

Phil Whelans - Writer and performer of his own Radio 4 sitcom, My First Planet, founder member of Pros from Dover - You actually struggle to find a comparison; their material is genuinely and utterly original. The Pros from Dover are an exciting riot that just should not be missed. ★★★★ Three Weeks - with whom he did two series of Radio 4's The Infinite Monkey Cage. As a writer or performer, Phil has worked with everyone from Robin Williams to Chris Morris, Al Gore to Brian Conley, Joan Rivers to Basil Brush.* He improvises with Grand Theft Impro and Monkey Toast.
