Nominee 2019 Best Comedy Melbourne Fringe.

Soothplayers improvise a hilarious Shakespearean play from nothing but a suggested title from the audience all on the damned spot! They guarantee you will laugh or your money back. Really!

Comedy? Tragedy? History? From star-crossed lovers to sword-crossed duels and cross-eyed fools, Soothplayers provide everything that four centuries of theatre-goers know and love. The show is fast-paced and action-packed, promising laughs and gasps in equal measure.

Sounds impossible, right? The cast includes veterans of the Australian Shakespeare Company as well as Melbourne’s premier improvisation troupes, including The Improv Conspiracy, Impro Melbourne, and The Big HOO-HAA!. They deliver a high-quality, hilarious show that is guaranteed to be unlike anything else you will see this Festival!

"A sure bet." - Herald Sun.

"Soothplayers’ rowdy, hilarious plays are incredibly enjoyable and kind of astounding." - The Age.

"Soothplayers will leave you wondering why you didn’t enjoy studying Shakespeare at school. ★★★★" - Planet Arts.

"Genius. ★★★★½" - Theatre People.

"Nothing short of awe-inspiring. ★★★★" - The Music

"Clever, charming and wildly impressive from start to finish" - Beat Magazine

"A must-see for fans of the theatre, of improv, or for anyone who just wants to add a little pseudo-culture to their comedy. ★★★★★" - The Funny Tonne

"A night full of humour, playfulness, and a sprinkle of surprise ★★★★" - FringeFeed Perth

"★★★★" - Fourthwall Media Perth

"The audience was on board from the word go, enthralled by the quick-witted creativity and thrilled as each scene was skilfully delivered and another act successfully navigated. It's a highly impressive feat, as well as lots of fun." - Australian Stage

"May have changed my opinion about improv shows. Improv really has changed a lot since the 1980s. And I don't understand why Melbourne's Soothplayers aren't a crowd-hanging-from-the-rafters cult." - Sometimes Melbourne
