Lockdown life getting too predictable? Every Wednesday, theatre company Sedos and the Banana Hut Gang will present Zoom Your Own… Improv!
The improv show will give the audience the power to make all the decisions despite being in isolation!
Following the cancellation of Edinburgh Fringe 2020, this group of tenacious improvisers wanted to find a way to bring their improv show to the people and keep the nation smiling throughout the lockdown. So that’s exactly what they’ve done.
In their 2019 sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show, Choose Your Own…Improv! Banana Hut Gang created a dynamic new form of long form improv. In this show the audience call all the shots, not just at the beginning when they pick a genre, lead character and quest, but also throughout the 45 minute long improvised play. The audience help to decide what will happen to the main character throughout the story – whether it’s a murder mystery, sci-fi or romcom – the Banana Hut Gang create a brand-new world and the audience make crucial decisions that drive the story forwards, derail it completely or force the performers to return to previous decisions and choose another path.
Zoom Your Own… Improv! retains all of these elements and slickly transfers them online, with all seven of the cast performing from the safety of their own homes. Help choose the path the story takes by watching on Zoom, or if you’re suffering with decision fatigue, watch the whole thing unravel on Facebook live. And if you’re busy on Wednesday evenings, you can still catch up with past shows on their YouTube channel.
When: Wednesdays at 8.30pm during lockdown
Where: Via Zoom (using meeting ID: 971-0453-7924)
