The Nursery presents a night of improvised theatre – completely made up on the spot! Every show features a selection of talented improvisers from across the UK and beyond bringing you some of the most exciting unscripted theatre around. Watch them create everything from short scenes to an entire musical live on stage in front of your eyes!

Tonight’s show features…

Jinni Lyons is an Only Child – Comical, lyrical, improvised theatre from an Only Child.  Come and watch her people the stage with myriad companions in a series of vignettes charting each character’s quirks and peccadilloes, dilemmas and dreams.

“Astonishing and hilarious” – Hideout Theatre, Austin, Texas
“Magical intimate character improv” – Bristol Improv Theatre
“An exemplary improviser…I have never seen anyone like her” – Mike McShane, Whose Line is it Anyway?


A Very Serious Play –  Lee Simpson and Ruth Bratt are very serious about play.  They present for you A Very Serious Play. Beyond that, no-one knows. Except that it’s improvised.  And they like improvising with each other. And seriously playing.


Swipe Right are an improv group who play the relationships you want to see, and the relationships you don’t. Inspired by a random selection of music, they always have an eye on the joyful, skipping from the realistic to the surreal.
