Go to Shakespeare: Off The Ruff

1–3 July 2021

You’ve never seen The Bard like this! 

Based on a single suggestion from the audience, the Lightbulb Improv company creates two fully improvised Shakespearean masterpieces right before your eyes. Nothing has been planned or written in advance for the comedy and drama about to unfold. Each performance is a completely new work, inspired by Shakespearean words, intrigues and themes. All dialogue is devised on the spot, all characters created as you watch. All the stage is a world not yet explored! Experience two plays every night, as audiences witness a new tragedy and comedy performed back-to-back by Canberra's premier improvised theatre company. As an antidote to our often predictable and routine lives, Lightbulb creates spontaneous entertainment to bring you the unexpected. Lightbulb are known for delighting audiences with their unique flavour of warm, funny and surprising unscripted theatre. Since 2016, Lightbulb has performed in comedy festivals and international festivals and love bringing their improvised magic to Canberra.
