This time around We ae talking about All Falls Down, which is their show coming to Vault Festival 2023. All Falls Down is an an interactive and improvised storytelling show about a group of friends trying to make contact with civilisation, and survive in the wilderness, after a plane crash.
We find out more about the show and why it will be different every performance. Plus we discuss how you go about devising what is very much an improv show, how you deal with over eager audience members, and whether the venue of a shipping container has an effect on how the show performs.

All Falls Down
Vault Festival 2023
24 – 28 January 2023
All Falls Down is an interactive and improvised storytelling show about a group of friends trying to make contact with civilisation, and survive in the wilderness, after a plane crash.
The audience guides their characters through the wreckage and the surrounding forests, trying to find help while avoiding the mysterious dangers that may lurk in the woods they now find themselves stranded in. The audience’s actions decide how the story progresses, who or what they make contact with and, most importantly, how many of them survive the ordeal.
All Falls Down promises a fully improvised and reactive story created by the Off West End award winning theatre company, Chronic Insanity.
Further Information and bookings can be found here.
