The Gin & Scenic adventure began in September 2022, 7 years after the creation of Act’in Theatre. The students of the troupe decided to surpass themselves! To do so, we created the Gin & Scenic troupe!
The GIN & SCENIC
Why the name "Gin & Scenic"?
The Gin & Scenic troupe is the third troupe of the Act’in Theatre company. And it is the first English-speaking troupe! It was therefore natural that the identity of the troupe should exist with an English name.
After the Gueules de Bois, the French drama troupe of the company, what better name than a name in the festive world of cocktails to translate the joyfulness and convivial spirit of the company?
Everyone knows the Gin & Tonic, a cocktail composed of gin and sparkling tonic water poured over a large amount of ice. The ratio between gin and tonic varies according to the taste, the strength of the gin, the other mixtures added, …
Here we go! Gin & Scenic is a cocktail of personalities, games and characters that are renewed each time. Depending on the intensity of the role, the venue, the script, the mood, you are guaranteed a different and always sparkling show.
When to see the troupe?
In order to get together we created the In’Terval format which takes place every 5/6 weeks in London in a pub with a cabaret room.
In’Terval is a special format in two acts.
The first act is a theatre show performed by the Gin & Scenic troupe in a light-hearted, intimate and minimalist setting.
The second act is a long form improvisation show by the explosive troupe The Parentheticals. The audience is directly taken on board by the troupe who play their own proposals on stage for a moment of sharing filled with surprises!
