The Maydays give you exactly that with their brand new improvised comedy show Confessions. They invite you to share your true tales, anonymously at the start of the show. From the cringe worthy to the downright hilarious, they want to know what you've been up to, and for you to share your deepest, darkest secrets with them! See your very own stories and secrets turned into live comedy as they create completely improvised sketches using only their wits and your confessions. (And maybe a chair!)

They have won the Best Comedy Show Award at the Brighton Festival Fringe and are the only improv outfit in the UK to travel across the Atlantic to train en masse in Chicago, the city regarded as the Mecca of Improv, where they trained at Second City, iO, and the Annoyance improv theatres.
