Closer Each Day At The Wardrobe Theatre Celebrates 13 Years

World’s longest running improvised story celebrates birthday

Closer Each Day, the long-running theatrical soap in Bristol, is celebrating its 13th Birthday at The Wardrobe Theatre this May.

Described as having the ‘grit’ of Eastenders, the ‘rumpy-pumpy’ of Sex Education and the ‘drama’ of succession, the comedy show is entirely unscripted, making every performance totally unique.

Closer Each Day began at the same time that the theatre opened. Actor/director/theatre maker Tom Brennan, was inspired by Die-Nasty! a Canadian theatrical soap opera in a similar vein.

Closer Each Day now holds the record for the longest running improvised story in the world, by retaining the same characters in an ever-changing story.

To celebrate its 13th birthday and say thank you to Bristol for its support, the team behind the show are offering 2-4-1 tickets throughout May 2024.

This month’s performances will run on 06, 13 and 27 May – with the latter one being the season finale.

Not to worry though because the new season returns from Monday 16 September.

The company will also be running masterclasses in improvisation at the Wardrobe Theatre on 18 May and 23 June, with more dates planned over the summer.
