Happily Never After is to be staged at The Nursery Theatre.
Award-winning improvisers The Maydays have been quietly gathering an army of fans around the world with their exceptional talent for creating skin-prickling theatre from nothing.
Now they are dazzling audiences with their hugely popular and deliciously dark musical show, Happily Never After. Created from a single audience suggestion, The Maydays weave a playful tale, full of dark, twisted comedy, dynamic physicality, and a haunting bespoke cinematic soundtrack, in a loose homage to cult film director Tim Burton’s gothic style, with influences from Lemony Snicket, the Brothers Grimm and dark fairy tales.
The Maydays take you to mysterious worlds, meeting the grotesque and the innocent, and weave a fantastical tale that’s different every single time! After sell-out shows at Edinburgh, Barcelona and VAULT Festivals, Happily Never After is a word-of-mouth success that raises the bar on what’s possible with improvised theatre.
See the trailer below. The show will be playing at The Nursery Theatre, Broadgate on Friday July 21st.
