Under the guidance of Artistic Director Mick Napier, The Annoyance provides excellent quality training

in improvisation.

 

Based on Napier’s book, Improvise: Scene From the Inside Out, the Annoyance philosophy focuses on the individual, giving students feedback and support to allow them to find and enhance their personal point of view and creative voice.
