Improguise’s 2nd Annual Soap-a-Thon for Rape Crisis

For the second year in a row, the award-winning comedy improvisation group Improguise will be donating their time and combined talent to raise money for Rape Crisis. This annual fundraising event, called the Soap-a-Thon, will leave the audience in stitches as the actors improvise scenes from a soap opera for 15 hours without stopping.

On Saturday 26 October 2013 from 9am to midnight, the actors will take to the stage to perform 10 seventy-minute soap opera style episodes. Each episode will advance the medieval fantasy storyline, loosely based on popular shows like Game of Thrones and classic movies like Camelot and Excalibur. While we would love to tease you with some plot giveaways, we can’t! Because no one, not even the actors, know what is going to happen! Maybe we will run into some kings and queens, knights and noblewomen, maybe we will see murder, treachery, and magic but who knows? What we can tell you for sure is that you’ll experience some side-splitting comedy and world-class entertainment at the Soap-a-Thon!

About rapecrisisblog

We have a vision of a South Africa in which rape survivors suffer no secondary trauma, and are supported throughout their interaction with the Criminal Justice System (CJS). Our mission is to promote an end to violence against women, specifically rape, and to assist women to achieve their right to live free from violence. Rape Crisis Cape Town seeks to achieve its mission through counselling and training of women, thereby reducing the trauma experienced by rape survivors, and encouraging reporting of rape and the conviction of rapists.
