Absolute Improv Stories!

Absolute Improv Stories is a witty, hour-long show where children can transform their ideas into stories for the stage. To Be Continued company use minimal props to create family friendly stories, with hilarious consequences and plenty of imagination.

The show starts with a brainstorming session where the children were asked off the wall questions. These ranged from what would be their worst Christmas present to their favourite super power. With the funniest answer to the worst Christmas present question (from a six year old boy who said ‘Exam results’), the TBC team quickly jump into their narrative, which - no mean feat - they sustain for the whole length of the show.

Expect hilarious characters created on the spot - such as Pirate Sydney - alongside a whole of host of animal impressions; strange occupational mashups like ‘Hop Along Jon the Cowboy Dentist’; vapour mist ghosts and a magical adventure to a far away land – ours being to ‘Toyland’.

Absolute Improv Ideas is fun, warm and interactive, but, despite its listing, is really more for younger children. If you have a ten year old who is more interested in football than theatre, this is probably not the show to take him to.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
