Maydays Present Three Genres Improv Course, The Nursery


Improvise Wes Anderson, Bollywood and Ancient Greek Drama! 

In this 8 week course co-taught by Jonah Fazel & Waleed Akhtar, you will play within the Stylised nostalgia of a visually stunning but melancholic Wes Anderson movie, work with the societally relevant and moralistic themes of ancient Greek Tragedy. Plus- It’s glitz, it’s glamour, high drama… It’s BOLLYWOOD!! Get all the joy of playing big outrageous fun characters, and exploring the dynamics of an Asian family with none of the long term scarring or therapy bills.

You will expand on your knowledge of working with genres as experienced in the Principles of Genre Course and feel ready to develop your own show, audition for a genre based team or just simply smash that short-form genre audience suggestion.

We are The Maydays, an award-winning improvised comedy company with bases in Brighton and London. We offer brilliant, acclaimed performances and life-changing tuition in improvised comedy – the creation of scenes and songs in the moment with the power to make people laugh, cry and think.
