EIIF: Becky Drysdale – Playing What’s Already There (SOLD OUT)

Scottish Storytelling Centre
External Venue
Edinburgh International Improv Festival

After a successful launch in 2019 the annual Edinburgh International Improv Festival is back in 2020 with an even bigger and better line up and an exciting programme of workshops available.

Everything you need for your scene is on stage with you. You don’t need to invent, write quickly in your head, come up with some hilarious idea, or wait for someone to come in from the back line to tie everything together. Learn how to identify game and relationships right out of the gate, and communicate with your partner through heightening instead of explaining. Stop looking for game, and start creating it, stop waiting for unusual things and make the things that are already happening unusual. Spend less time figuring out what your scene is, and more time actually playing it!

Visit for more information on the festival.

Please note this workshop is being held at the Monkey Barrel.
