Soothplayers improvise plays in the style of Shakespeare.
“Hysterical, ingenious and riveting” ShakespeareOz.

Soothplayers improvise a hilarious Shakespearean play from nothing but a suggested title from the audience. No plans. No scripts. They guarantee you will laugh or your money back. Really!

Comedy? Tragedy? History? From star-crossed lovers to sword-crossed duels and cross-eyed fools, Soothplayers provide everything that four centuries of theatre-goers know and love, completely on the spot! Did you hate Shakespeare in school? Prepare thyself. The show is fast-paced and action-packed, promising laughs and gasps for Bard lovers and haters alike.

Soothplayers enjoyed a SOLD-OUT season last time they graced the Courthouse Hotel stage, receiving rave reviews and leaving audiences begging for more. Each performance is a completely new work, using Shakespearean language, themes, and style. Even the musical accompaniment is completely improvised!

Sounds impossible, right? The cast includes veterans of the Australian Shakespeare Company as well as Melbourne’s premier improvisation troupes, including The Improv Conspiracy, Impro Melbourne, The Big Hoo-Haa!, and Impromptunes. They work hard to provide a high-quality, hilarious show that is guaranteed to be unlike anything else you will see this festival!

Book quickly, as shows will sell out.
