Extempore Theatre in Association with The Bristol Old Vic present


A 50-hour non-stop improvised comedy soap opera in twenty-five 2-hour episodes.

The finest improvisers from all over the world will meet in the ‘Space’ for an epic odyssey of romance, mystery and adventure.

After many hours without sleep, performers are peeled back to their ‘lizard brain’ resulting in a wild, uncensored and euphoric playing style that you will never see anywhere else in the world.

How does it work? 
Each episode lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes followed by a fifteen minute break. Episodes start at 7pm, 9pm, 11pm, 1am, 3am etc – right the way through the night.

It is like watching an entire DVD box-set of your favourite drama in one viewing.

Audiences can buy tickets for any stand-alone episode or watch as many hours as they like. Many brave the whole extravaganza with a fifty hour pass!

Tickets are: 
£10 for a two hour episode.
£7 concessions
£5 to stay on for any episodes. These can only be bought at the venue on the day.
£55 for a full event pass.

There will be a special ‘Family Episode’ (Sunday 11am-1pm) where we redesign the action for kids and families.

When is it?
Starts 7pm Friday 24th January and finishes 9pm Sun 26th January. Episodes start on odd numbered hours: 7pm, 9pm, 11pm, 1am, etc (yes, all through the night!)
