About This Show

From the creative minds behind the international hit Shockheaded Peter comes the acclaimed work Spirit, which begins and ends with three performers onstage, half in and half out of a steeply raked platform with no scripted lines to say and no story to act out. They have only themselves and the audience to make theatre from. In between is a story of three bakers who are three brothers. The eldest of the brothers is sent his call up papers to fight in his country’s war, but dreaming of heroism, the youngest brother intercepts the letter and goes to war in his sibling’s place. Spirit, by Improbable, is directed by Julian Crouch and Arlene Audergon, and performed by Guy Dartnell, Phelim McDermott, and Lee Simpson.

The London-based ensemble Improbable has fashioned an enthralling theater piece that simultaneously celebrates and deconstructs the creative process.
