Call shotgun for a Road Trip with Big Fork Theatre
Brisbane’s favourite improv comedy company, Big Fork Theatre, returns to the Anywhere Festival with a brand new show – Road Trip.
Join Brisbane’s most talented improvisers as they weave together characters, relationships and challenges familiar to anyone who has gone on a road trip with family and friends.
In true Anywhere Festival style Big Fork Theatre is taking this show as far away from a conventional theatre as you can get – the car park.
Show Director and Big Fork Theatre co-founder Cameron Watson talked about what makes Road Trip unique, “we all have memories of that amazing road trip we took with friends or the one with family that tested our limits, but even if it was difficult at the time you can’t help but look back and laugh”.
“Road Trip will capture the memories of the audience in an improvised comedy show that unfolds in real time. It’s going to be a challenge to create an intimate improv experience outdoors in a car park but we’ve got a lot of experience producing shows Anywhere.”
The show will feature some of Brisbane’s most experienced improvisers as well as recent graduates of Big Fork Theatre’s improv training program. Inspired the Directors’ time at the big U.S. improv schools the Upright Citizens Brigade, Second City and iO, BIg Fork’s training program is Brisbane’s most popular.
Road Trip joins Big Fork Theatre’s other show at the 2019 Anywhere Festival, Dinner with Friends as Big Fork tackles producing two shows at the Festival. “We are excited to be able to offer even more performing opportunities for our growing community of performers” says show Director Cameron Watson.
He continues, “we’ve had great success with Around the Campfire and Infinite Skies in previous years at the Anywhere Festival – we’ve actually just finished a Brisbane Powerhouse run of Around the Campfire at the Brisbane Comedy Festival – so we thought we’d go even bigger this year.”
Big Fork theatre is a 2017 and 2018 Anywhere Festival Award Winner for previous shows Around the Campfire and Infinite Skies.
Big Fork Theatre in association with Anywhere Theatre Festival presents Road Trip , a fully improvised comedy that explores the highs and lows of travelling with friends and family.
