Many shows are designed around dinner, each scene taking place between courses. However we can also perform most of the shows 'Guerilla Style' - approaching guests as a magician would, so small groups get private performances.

Our performers are well-attuned to working events, so those guests who want to be involved will be included and those who would rather carry on their important conversations will be left alone!

Our shows often serve a logistical function during an event - making calls for dinner and assisting guests to their seats for example. The actors will meet and greet guests, 'in character' if appropriate, helping to make the evening interactive and gently immersive.



Most of our events have a real bespoke element, so please get in touch to discuss ideas and budget.



Shows

Our actors are all classically trained and work regularly in high quality theatre such as

The West End, The RSC, and The Globe Theatre.

 



                    Pyramus and Thysbe

PnTThe hilarious play-within-a-play from Shakespeare’s great comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Four actors perform one of Shakespeare’s gems, with plenty of audience participation as party guests taking on the roles of Lords and Ladies at Theseus' wedding. This show lasts for about 15 minutes and is best performed towards the end of a meal, or just as the event begins to relax and go into 'party mode'.

The classic comedy characters of P.G. Wodehouse, famously brought to life on television, are now transported to your party!

 

The hapless gentleman and his wisecracking butler will be on hand to welcome you to the party, mingle and interact with guests in character and perform stand alone scenes based on the novels. Then, when you sit down for dinner, they'll quip and joke with each other to entertain you with 5-8 minute scenes between courses.
