The Goatador writes of the show at the Impro Embassy at the Ratibor theatre, Berlin, Germany5th April 2018.
After The Chaucer Procedure, the telling of a tale of a Swedish refugee horseman’s arrival in Berlin with his family took place. The Tragedy of King Wenceslas of Norway was played out, featuring the live mixing of a cocktail to accompany a bawdy scene and the majestic victory of the Amazon Queen Hippolyta.
