Where There's A Will:The 9th Annual Liverpool 33.5hr Improvathon on Saturday 27th - Sunday 28th October 2018
Stop all the clocks, cover the mirrors… for he is dead.
The peaceful passing of William Reading has been the source of great sadness to his many children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and second cousins twice removed. In life he was celebrated for his many successes: his keen participation in Elephant Polo, taking the English team to victory in 1938; his invention of the sport of polar bear baiting; the Sanctuary for Blind Bats; and his equation that worked out how long a piece of string actually is. Controversially, 14 months of his life are unaccounted for by friends and family: rumours abound but the truth remains cloaked in mystery.
Mr Reading has indeed left a huge legacy, the details of which will be revealed over the course of the weekend. All interested parties and possible beneficiaries are therefore requested to attend, as the Last Will and Testament of William Reading is revealed in…
Where There’s A Will! An Improvised Soap Opera of Epic Proportions!
How It Works:
Episode 1 starts at 1pm Sat 27th October and the show runs continuously for 17 episodes. Episodes are 2 hours long, beginning on the odd hours (1pm, 3pm, 5pm, etc.), and go on until 10.38pm on Sun 28th October (yes, all through the night). Audiences are free to join the story at any point and to stay for as little or as long as they wish. Each episode begins with the “story so far”, so you won’t miss anything. Parental guidance is strongly suggested; however, our always popular Children’s Episode takes place 11am–1pm on Sunday and will be suitable for audiences of any age.
We've taken you to quaint country villages, magical fairy castles, the Roman Empire and the deepest reaches of space… Now journey with us to the very gates of death!… Just up to the gates, not actually past them…

The Improvathon is based on a format created and made popular by Canadian company Die-Nasty, who have held an annual 50-hour “Soap-a-thon” for over 20 years. This year, Impropriety will be joined by improvisers from such companies as Die-Nasty, The Showstoppers, Project Two and Austentatious. Live improvised music will accompany the onstage silliness – previous years have seen collaborations with numerous local luminaries including members of Dogshow, Dead Hedge Trio, The Kazimier Krunk Band and Loveless.
