On Sunday nights this August, Impro Melbourne invites you to enjoy a truly unique evening of improvised theatre with an exciting double bill of Death Comes To Us All and When In Rome. Tickets are now on sale - 3 performances only!
This double bill of first-run improvised theatre will take Melbourne audiences on a rollercoaster of emotions as the acclaimed plays explore love, loss and the arena of life.
The evening commences at 7.30pm with Death Comes To Us All which examines the sweet and delicate balance between life and death as improvisers create lives, loves and inter-connection, under the ever-present figure of Death.
With a simple touch, a character's fate is sealed, and their sweetest memory revealed. Once 'touched' the character can relive their sweetest memory, before leaving the other characters to re-connect and continue the stories.
Created by Co-Artistic Director Katherine Weaver, Death Comes To Us All premieres in Melbourne after a sell-out run at the New Zealand Improvisation Festival in 2016. "It's an ingenious premise for an improv show and this team builds on its promise with consummate skill." – Theatre Review, New Zealand
When In Rome follows and sees The Bold and The Beautiful collide with Ancient Rome in an epic swords and sandals soap opera. Created by Co-Artistic Director Patti Stiles, this improvised soap will unfold over three Sunday night episodes. Grab your toga and join gladiators, courtesans, philosophers, soothsayers, senators and peasants, all bowing before the Gods of Theatre in the Colosseum of Impro. Can they survive the arena, find love, make a sacrifice, and avoid a knife in the back?

"Vibrant and suspenseful because it is a moment-by-moment experience and the actors are totally responsive to each another and their audience. That, in itself, is a recipe for total theatre engagement." – WeekendNotes
