Bring on the Clowns (and the Fools and the Slapsicks)*

You know the drill. Bring a short piece (around 5 minutes long) of clowning, fooling, or slapstick fun. And if you really can't think of anything, some pieces will also be provided on the night. Presented by Alison Shephard.

Just to get you thinking:

Writers and theatre makers - Jean Cocteau, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Bertolt Brecht, Samuel Beckett, Giorgio Strehler, Dario Fo, and Roberto Benigni

Characters - Mr Bean, Bridget Jones, Falstaff, Mrs Malaprop, Calamity Jane, Juliet's Nurse and any of Shakespeare's Clowns and fools, the Commedia del Atre
