Scriptless and faceless
This is a unique take on the traditional Theatresports style format of improvisational comedy, featuring faceless puppets (AKA 'Rita's) creating scenes on the spot, based on audience suggestions.

The performers and audience members take turns in selecting eyes and noses off the 'face buffet' and place them on the puppets to inspire new characters.

David S. Innes excels at hosting with warming up the audience, encouraging participation and suggestions, and knowing when to wrap up or add another element into a scene.

It is certainly a team effort with someone else on lighting and music cues, which can add to the stories that the performers are creating or even take them in a different direction.

There will be a special guest from the comedy scene each night. On opening night it was Liam Amor, a star in the world of improv who really brought the LOLs. He fit right in with the core cast of the four.

There were a number of short scenes played out and one longer form scene with the opportunity for plot twists and character development. On this night, the long form scene was in the style of a Bond movie, which was a highlight.

Highly recommended for a fun late night show, running each night except Friday, up until Sunday the 25th. You can buy tickets here

No two shows will be the same but laughs are always guaranteed.
