Soothplayers take a title from the audience and improvise an hour-long play in Shakespearean style. The show has been called 'the performance equivalent of attempting to solve a Rubik's cube blindfolded' (Buzzcuts). It brings Shakespeare lovers and haters together for a fun night of laughter and amazement!While all shows employ the distinctive themes and language of Shakespeare, every play is unique and created on the spot: no scripts, no planning. The ensemble features some of Melbourne’s most well-trained and talented improvisers, including graduates of Impro Melbourne, The Improv Conspiracy, and Chicago’s iO Theatre. Whether playing comedy, tragedy or history, Soothplayers promise an experience that is equal parts hilarity and wonder.
