Strangers is a unique, unscripted comedy-drama devised by veteran improviser Jonathan Briden. This show has been getting rave reviews in Christchurch and has recently toured to Dunedin Fringe Festival. The show is different every night with new characters and unscripted stories.

Strangers explores the moment when two strangers meet.  It may be a fleeting moment of connection, the start of a whirlwind romance, or the beginning of a deadly rivalry. Watch as our actors create beautiful moments of humour, heartbreak, and humanity in an unscripted exploration into the genesis of relationship.

Impulse Theatre perform twice monthly shows in Christchurch.  The cast are experienced actors with years of theatre, improvisation, stand up comedy and screen acting experience. Strangers is their new show - coming to Nelson for the first time.

Nelson Fringe cast includes Jonathan Briden, Joanna Prendergast, Debbie Klausen, Lucy Darlington, Mark Darbyshire and Aaron Jelley.

Audience reviews:

"Strangers was a rare and delightful improv experience. Watching 6 strangers discover new friends, relationships and themselves is a quirky and charming form to watch. It was like a romcom, co-directed by Ryan Reynolds and Alfred Hitchcock. I can't wait to go again!!"

"Spectacularly funny and super awkward. Strangers brings the best of original kiwi improv to the masses."

"What a cool show! The audience was laughing from start to finish! Such a good time. So glad I spent my Friday night at Strangers".

"Fantastic show, by turns hilarious and thought-provoking. Who knew Christchurch had such talent?"

"A really funny, clever and inventive show! Loved it."

"A very amusing and fast paced performance. I've been twice and had two completely different experiences."

This show has been adopted by the wonderful people from Trouble + Fox Boutique. Thank You!!!
