A highly acclaimed improvised stage production, featuring a different ‘movie’ every performance, is completing its UK tour this week.
Mischief Movie Night arrived in Cardiff last night (July 18) and our senior consultant, Andrew Weltch, was at the New Theatre to review it for our companion hyperlocal site Rhiwbina Info.
The audience was invited to choose a genre, location and various other aspects of the ‘film’. Then, for the next hour, the amazingly talented cast from Mischief Theatre company performed it – creating every scene, every song, indeed every bizarre character, as they went along.
“It sounds like it couldn’t possibly work as a comedy – you might expect performers to dry up or talk over each other, or for any narrative to fall apart. But none of that happened – this was the funniest thing I’ve seen on stage since the same company was in town with The Play That Goes Wrong.
“This show is an absolute treat – witty, inventive and joyously absurd.”
The production runs at Cardiff’s New Theatre until Sunday.
