Flying Embers Improv Troupe – Featuring the return of Diabolical Fishbank!


Fishbank NCWEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 2017 AT 7:30 PM.
Spring is upon us and we are happy to celebrate.  Come out and enjoy another rousing mix of long form and short form improv at Burning Coal’s own Flying Embers Improv Troupe! Joining us once again will be “Diabolical Fishbank” featuring Greg Phillips and Brian Dukes.  Yes, the rumors are true — Brian Dukes will be moving to Chicago to pursue his improv dreams in the town that pretty much invented it.   Come out and wish him well!  All shows are approximately 90 minutes long with a 10 minute intermission.  Discretion is advised as adult themes are expected.  Audience participation is encouraged.  See you there!

ALL TICKETS $12.  FOR TICKETS CLICK BELOW:

DARK VANILLA JUNGLE by Philip Ridley

Burning Coal Theatre at the Camden Fringe Festival – August 10 – 14, 2016
Cockpit Theatre, London, England

Burning Coal Theatre Company of Raleigh, North Carolina returns to the Cockpit with Philip Ridley’s brutal 70 minute “Dark Vanilla Jungle”.  

A scalding play about a young woman trying to come to terms with a terrible breach of trust.

In November, 2014, Burning Coal brought over David Edgar’s roaring Iron Curtain Trilogy (4-stars, Michael Billington, Guardian).

The company returns with Philip Ridley’s quietly devastating masterpiece.

Wednesday 10th to Saturday 13th August – 9:00pm
Sunday 14th August – 8:30pm

All Tickets: £10 at http://tickets.thecockpit.org.uk/Sales/Shows/Dark-Vanilla-Jungle#book
