DDG Improv Jam!

Put on a paper crown and follow that star to the penultimate Duck Duck Goose before Christmas! This week’s three gifts around the manger are:

Doctor Twoprov! Take a ride through the time vortex with this dimensionally transcendental duo, as they bring you scenes inspired by that most garrulous of Gallifreyans.

We Are Not A Cult! We’re walking in a witty wonderland of magical scenes from this team, who are also almost certainly a cult.

Somewhat Theatre! It’s somewhat of a pantomime, as this hugely hilarious gang put their dignity behind them to bring us a show bursting at the Buttons with festive joy.

All this, plus YOU! Join in with our two person scenes and montages, and get improvising for FREE!

Inspector Sands! Don’t panic! Nothing is on fire. Unless you find yourself in a world where everything is on fire. Anything is possible with Inspector Sands and team on the case…

Ramshackle! A madcap, rickety construction of scenes, built from the blueprints of some quickfire cross-cultural conversations.

All this, plus our Audience Jams! Give your name to one of Team DDG on the night, and they’ll get you on stage and improvising!
