If you go down to the woods today… you’ll be sure of a big surprise! Impropriety, Liverpool’s premier Improvisation Company promises to take you on a magical journey to the place where your childhood stories came from; as they present their 6th Annual Liverpool Improvathon at The Kazimier – An entirely improvised comedy epic that will run continuously for 2015
minutes (33 hours and 35 minutes)

After spending last year’s epic weekend in the genteel English countryside of Umbridge, 2015 delves into enchanted Forests, troll infested bridges & gingerbread cottages. Castles and topless towers await the wonderful imaginations of the UK’s best improvisers to populate them with characters and explore the deep dark recesses of storytelling. So come Into The Woods, get Enchanted and Once Upon a Time allow yourself to get Tangled in our Neverending Story… Or perhaps just Let It Go

The Improvathon is based on a format created and made popular by Canadian company DIE-Nasty, who have held an annual 50-hour “Soap-a-thon” for over 20 years. This year, Impropriety will be joined by improvisers from such companies as Showstopper, Project Two and Austentatious. Live improvised music will accompany the onstage silliness,previous years have seen collaborations with several local bands including Dogshow, Dead Hedge Trio, Kazimier Krunk Band and The Bog Standards.
