From the creators of Olivier Award winning ‘Showstopper! The Improvised Musical’, this is competitive improv as you've never seen it.

Honouring ancient Athenian traditions, two ‘rhapsodes’ - Adam Meggido and Sean McCann -compete to improvise a fully-authentic Shakespearean masterpiece on the spot. Featuring rap, poetry slams and any writer from the last 3,000 years, 'Rhapsodes' will change the way you think about improv – and possibly – Shakespeare. A unique celebration of the poetic, the dramatic and the absurdly comic. **** 'Intelligent, uproarious, laugh-a-minute fare' Daily Telegraph

***** ‘Jaw-droppingly extraordinary.’ BroadwayBaby

***** ‘Hilarious. The bard has never been this much fun.’ ThreeWeeks
