Everybody knows everybody in this home-town comedy of characters set in a community much like 'this one.' Using audience suggestions the festival cast weave together an improvised play that proves that anything can happen in a village.

Read more about director Clare Kerrison in our Spotlight On: series.

The Village is part of our Spontaneous Showcase, where five experienced directors present their work with a cast of festival participants brought together for one night only. Across the week every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night. With these incredible improvisors and directors from all around New Zealand (and the world!), you’re in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat every time.

...so much fun. With each act the storylines became more and more entwined, coming to a satisfying conclusion...
