OLIVER TWISTED: AN IMPROVISED DICKENS
YOU’LL WANT SOME MORE…
Following the huge success of Austen Found and Enid Untold, ConArtists are back to deliver Great Improvisations as they invent a brand new Dickensian theatrical every night. Mrs Plodswallop or perhaps Mr Smigglesquelch will bring Victorian England alive, complete with urchins, prostitutes and gruel. You’ll be wanting some more as it’ll be the best of times….and the best of times.
ConArtists have been entertaining Aucklanders since 1987 and show no signs of slowing down. The company members have performed improv all over the world, have represented their country with Theatresports™ and also extensively toured New Zealand. They boast some of the most experienced and hilarious improvisers in the country, so you should really see what all the fuss is about.
Cast members have been featured in Almighty Johnsons, Gloss, Lord of the Rings, In My Father’s Den, Good Morning, Shortland St, Outrageous Fortune, Xena, Hercules, Spartacus, 7 Days and Would I Lie to You. SO they’re quite good.
