Me Plus One is a two-time Edinburgh Fringe hit show which sees Edinburgh-based improviser Mara Joy (TBC Improv, The Spontaneous Players) joined by a different special guest each performance to create an entirely new and unique two-person comedy show based off one word from our audience. There’s no rehearsal time, no format for the show and no safety net – just two performers figuring out how to work together in real time! For Zeal, the guest is the phenomenally talented Maria Peters!
Maria Peters is a member of one of the UK’s top improv duos, Breaking & Entering, who perform and produce London’s popular Playground night. Her solo show, The Science of Cringe, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year and played to sell-out audiences. She has also written for BBC Radio Comedy and is a regular on the improvised podcast Destination. Maria has been invited to play at numerous international improv festivals including Estonia, The Netherlands, Philadelphia, Portugal & Dublin. She’s studied with many of the world’s best teachers such as the legendary Keith Johnstone, as well at instructors from Chicago’s Second City, iO, and New York’s UCB theatres.
