Two Of Wands
What if a dream stepped out of your head and onto stage? A two person improv show full of big choices and original twists.
You’ll leave wondering “what the hell just happened?”, having been drawn through a rollercoaster of characters and emotions. We will invite you into our fictional worlds, interacting with you in character and have you directly shape the show. Expect drama, comedy and a touch of poetry.
We’ve been described as “legitimately beautiful” and “beautifully odd.” Come watch us play and play with us.
"Two of Wands is one of the most strikingly-inventive improv troupes that I have had the pleasure of seeing. With their rich characters, a willingness to embrace both the surreal and grounded, and superb audience interaction, these two gifted actors have impressed and entertained me and audiences all across London. What is particularly noteworthy is how Michael and Lizzy draw from their own cultural interest and passions, giving them the opportunity to create characters that are both very real-feeling, but nonetheless extremely inventive." - Mark Tindle (Co-organiser of Duck Duck Goose Improv - London's premier improv jam)
