Have you been watching the telly channel Dave? If yes, then you'll have been having a comedy improv revivalist session as "Whose Line Is It Anyway" plays back to back for hours on end.

If this is you, we suggest you shake off the couch potato act this weekend and get yourself to the Isle of Dogs for comedy improv in the here and now. Stories That Want To Be Told will be previewing at The Space and is an entirely improvised work in progress (literally!) by the aptly named but well practised Uncertainty Division.

Starting with fairy tales and story suggestions from the audience - things you overheard on the bus or something you tuned into on the news are equally welcome - these brave souls will weave a narrative from your spontaneous brains and aim to entertain you with enduring human stories. Of course, it might all go wrong. But as the Uncertainty Division say themselves:

Too many shows start and finish as intended - this has to stop.

We're assured it's suitable for 8+. Even with the full gamut of human emotion.

Stories That Want To Be Told previews at The Space 269 West Ferry Road, E14 3RS on Sat 24th & Sun 25th Nov at 8pm. Ring 020 7515 7799 for tickets (£10/6). Then hang around in the bar afterwards, drink heavily and give brutally honest feedback.
