QUEEN of improvisation Josie Lawrence is coming to Steyning for the first time.
She will be joined by four other comedians as the Comedy Store Players swap the West End for a school hall for one night only, as part of the Steyning Festival 2014.
The show, A Serious Night Out, is at Steyning Grammar School’s Shooting Field Drama Hall on Saturday at 8pm. Doors and the bar open at 7.15pm. Tickets are £17.
The Comedy Store Players are masters of their craft and the best ad-lib ensemble in the UK.
Festival chairman Christine Aubrey said: “In 2012, the Steyning Festival brought you an evening with Neil Mullarkey in his brilliant Don’t Be Needy, Be Succeedy one-man show, which had us all splitting our sides.
“On Saturday, he is back, but this time with four others! They arrive with no script and not the faintest idea of what will happen.
“Through improvisation they create whole sketches and comic dramas that are amazingly inventive and sometimes take off into flights of surreal brilliance.”
She said the line-up would feature Josie Lawrence, Neil Mullarkey, Richard Vranch, Lee Simpson and Niall Ashdown.
