Want to be involved in something truly radical this weekend? How about watching a 50-hour comedy/horror improv show that will test your endurance and resolve?
I’m always looking for new experiences in the theatre and, lately, that has taken me to London’s fringes and off West End venues where tickets are cheap, the talent remarkable and the theatres warm and welcoming – and what’s more it’s only 30 minutes on the train into the capital.
The 6th annual London Improvathon, being held at Hoxton Hall (10 mins from Old St tube), sounds like a lot of fun. The show, loosely based on the 90th anniversary of Howard Carter discovering Tutankhamun’s tomb, features comics and actors from around the world.
