After a long March of many Wednesday those good old improv lads of Grimprov are back with a brand new twist! This Wednesday March the 30th at the Cock and Lion Pub there will be a double-header of improv! Up first will be an opening act consisting of participants in our unique forms workshop with a core of some amazing local performers, not to be missed! They will be debuting their creation to open up the show! Second up will be Grimprov’s new experiment: The Memory Box!

For the Memory Box Grimprov will need you to bring in stuff, for us to reminisce about. It could be physical things, written notes, business cards, old receipts or other things your sick and twisted minds desire!

All of this goes down at 8pm at the Cock and Lion Pub (202 Sparks) and is $5 at the door! So come welcome spring with some beer, laughs and take in the local improv scene with friends!
