Hear ye! Hear ye! Draw your swords and adjust your circlets for May Contain Nuts’ third show: Nuts of the Round Table!

In this latest quest, the Nuts bring you to a land filled with dragons, heroes, and high adventure. Inspired by stories of fantasy like The Lord of the Rings, Nuts of the Round Table will take you on a journey to the wildest reaches of our imaginations (and hopefully back again), and regale you with tales of epic proportions.

This is an improv show, meaning that the scenes you will see are created on the spot by us based on prompts that YOU provide. These scenes have never been performed before, and will never be performed again; so come down and share in the unique experience of creating something together out of thin air – just like magic. Perhaps those wizards were on to something after all…

The first 10 ticket holders to arrive at each show get a free packet of nuts, kindly sponsored by Tong Garden.

May Contain Nuts is honoured to have National Youth Council as venue partner for this show.

The Company Players are bringing back an original confection from 2018 – Dinner parties! That’s right: an evening of polite conversation, good food, and of course, some wine. An evening of relaxation. An evening to strengthen friendships.

But what happens when secrets are revealed? To loved ones? To strangers? What begins as an amiable evening, quickly descends into finger-pointing chaos, shouting, and permanent emotional damage to relationships.

Join us for dinner at The Improv Company.

A person dies, a spirit lingers, regrets and past joys/sorrows are revealed.

What begins at a funeral ends in a story of love and loss, of hurt and hate, or of reflection and revelation as ASAP Improv presents an improvised play, exploring the intricacies of human relationships sparked off by death of a character.

Completely unscripted, the play that you see and the songs that you hear on the show will all be made up on the spot based off suggestions from you, the audience.

So join us for a night of improvised theatre, as we take you on an emotional journey through the memories of a ghost and the people that knew them.

Opening the show is the talented team Multilinguini, who will be playing your favourite “Whose Line Is It Anyway”-style improv games to tickle your funny bone.
