I was kindly invited to attend a performance at the vaulty Towers at Waterloo.. It’s not normally a venue I have experienced.. The decor I say is eclectic, it’s a miss mash of anything and everything put together.. One area had period clothing, the other is covered in ivy and gargoyles and skulls around.. I think if I didn’t need to be here I wouldn’t have found it.
There was a little misunderstanding on my part I must add.. That I turned up for the wrong performance.. But the previous show was running 45 mins late (that was the show I missed!) so there was a little bit of a wait.. However the crew was very accommodating and allowed me to see the next show instead.. I didn’t know where the show was going to be held as it wasn’t obvious.. But when the time came.. The cellar door open leading to a basement area where the performers were waiting.. It’s not a proper state more set up like a front room with miss match furniture.. No seating plan.. Just huddle together was the instructions.
The comedy sketch was based on improvisation.. So audience participation was important and I enjoy these as you do feel part of the performance and you can lead it and there was a code word ‘die’ if you don’t like where the sketch was going.. Call me a control freak.. But that sense of control is really enjoyable for me..
