A rented cottage in the country. A group of friends who haven’t seen each other in 10 years. What could go wrong? An entirely improvised play set between a rose-tinted past and an uncertain future – The Long Weekend explores the bonds that still tie us together as we grow up and grow apart.
The improv format was originally created by Christine Brooks.
“Stuff. The stuff of stars. The stuff of light. The stuff of a planet before it is a planet … The stuff of a seed before it is a sycamore. Everything you see is in the process of making or unmaking or dying or living. Everything is in a state of change.” – The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Kelly Barnhill
Unmade Theatre make improv that is brave, heartfelt and playful. We forge connections – connections between characters, connections between improvisers and connections between the performers and the audience. We use movement, music, costumes and set to create theatre that is uniquely human and newly-discovered every single night.
Ed is thrilled to be part of this production featuring some of his very favourite improvisers. It will be debuting at the Sweden Improv Festival aka #SWIMP on 24th March 2018 before going on to perform a short run at The Nursery Theatre in London from 31st March – 7th April 2018.
