Improfest UK 2013 - Lion and Unicorn Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING last year’s success, the Lion and Unicorn Theatre is presenting its second festival of improvisation. Entitled Improfest UK 2013, it runs from Monday, February 25 to Sunday, March 3, 2013.

From established groups to the new kids on the block, the festival captures the diversity of spontaneous theatre.

But it’s audience members who help create the piece (a la Whose Line is it anyway?) by shouting out ideas – the aim is to make the night as funny and laugh out loud as possible – with actors doing the rest.

Impotent, a darkly comic drama by Matt Reed, continues at the Lion and Unicorn until January 26, 2013. It will be followed – from January 29 to February 23 – by Twelfth Night.
