Welcome to Talking People, where spontaneity takes centre stage!

Talking People is an electrifying evening of improvisation, where seasoned actors push the boundaries of creativity. As the lights dim, be prepared to see characters come to life, crafted in real-time by both the actors and audience collectively.

In the second act, the actors will delve deeper into these intricately woven narratives, exploring the twists and turns of each character’s journey. While laughter is inevitable, please note that Talking People isn’t a traditional comedy show – expect the unexpected, as grounded moments and characters impact on each other through raw emotion.

A unique theatrical experience, where every performance is a one-of-a-kind piece of storytelling that will live on in the memory of those who witness it.

Cast includes: Kiell Smith-Bynoe (‘Ghosts’ BBC), Aliyah Odoffin (‘Everything I know about love’ BBC1), Michael Parr (‘Emmerdale’ ITV), Elina Saleh (Lie Low’ Amazon Prime), Aaron Fontaine (‘The Outpost’ The CW), Isabella Brownson (Ridley Scott’s ‘Napoleon’)

Directed by: Richard Vincent
Created by: Elina Saleh

This event is presented as part of the Bush Theatre’s ALT B programme – a platform for creatives, makers and performers across artforms.
