'Hello, Goodbye', sang the Beatles in November 1967. Forty-eight years later BIG says ¡Hello Goodbye! in their November 2015 show, which is about beginnings and endings. The BIG IF international improv festival is over for another year, and autumn is upon us. New friends have been made and old friends have departed. Light is scarce and we warm our hands on steaming mugs of tea. All good things must come to an end so that new, better things can come to pass. As Hermann Hesse said, 'A magic dwells in each beginning.'
As always, the BIG players will be asking the audience for suggestions. They want to hear about beginnings and endings, a first day at school or losing a baby tooth, an old car or a new home, a broken heart or love at first sight, giving up smoking or discovering a brand-new type of muesli... just write them on a slip of paper right before show – and then sit back and watch the action, inspired by your adventures.
