It is the future, and everything has changed. Except for improv. Improv never changes.

There are many ways the world could end: zombie uprising, brains uploaded into computers, conquest by super-intelligent bees. But whatever happens, one thing is certain: there will always be improvisors asking you to come to their show. In The Improv Show at the End of the World you will decide how the world is coming to an end, and our brave improvisors will try and take your mind off that apocalypse the only way they know how.

The Improv Show at the End of the World is one of NZIF's World Premieres: five brand new experimental works devised by top directors and participants especially for this festival. Across the week every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night. With these incredible improvisors and directors from all around New Zealand (and the world!), you’re in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat every time.
