The Story Forge: Make Your Own Myth - Unity Theatre

The Story Forge: Make Your Own Myth

Saturday 20th April



Part of the Liverpool Improvisation Festival 2024


Who is the God of roundabouts? How did the microwave get its ping? What is Yorkshire, and how did it come to be? Senior academics of mythology (not really) Professor Lee Hithersay and Dr Robert Bond will guide you on a journey through your imagination. 

You, the audience, will create your own legends and even have the chance to get on stage and help tell them. Will it be Greek? Can it be Viking? Should it be ancient Mesopotamian? We don’t know! That’s up to you. You’re the boss. We just work here. 

The combined theatrical forces of Silly History Boys, Wing It Impro, and Rubbish Shakespeare Company bring you a hilarious hour of imagination, adventure and live music, where audience participation is utterly and completely – mandatory. 


Performed by: Rob Bond, Danny Bradley and Lee Hithersay 


Co-creation and directed by: Mark Smith
