The Uncertainty Division

Improvised theatre

Too many plays have been written; too many actors know their lines. Too many shows start and finish as intended - this has to stop. The Uncertainty Division put the fun, the unpredictable, and the spontaneous back into narrative theatre - to, if you like, bring the uncertain to the stage.

The Uncertainty Division was a London-based improvisation group, founded in 2001. Our first solo show was No Second Thoughts, in March 2002, followed by Impromime, a fully-improvised pantomime featuring more people, more costumes, and improvised songs and music throughout. We have toured three shows: Out Of Your Mind in 2003, An Extremely Memorable Emergency in 2004, and Impromime became our winter touring show in the 2005/06 season. Our last show was Stories That Want To Be Told, in November 2007.

You can read more about us. In addition, our touring shows were each covered by tour diaries. We also have a gallery of publicity and show photography, and a collection of nice things people have said about us.

UD members James Aylett & Andrew Ormerod are currently producing a podcast of improvised stories, while James Lark has worked on a range of (not strictly improvised) physical and musical theatre, as co-artistic director of Io Theatre Company.
