Let Us Make It Up To You is a late night mix of improv theatre and comedy, with each show a complete one-off.

Unlocked is an improvised theatre piece where doors spontaneously created onstage open to worlds both familiar and alien. Creator Amy Moule’s European tour means the show is making its way from Melbourne Australia to Newcastle’s Alphabetti Theatre on Friday 5th April, and before it does we asked the cast about memorable doors in their lives…

Way to a stairway to nowhere: One of my old flats was in a converted warehouse. There was a door to an old staircase, the staircase had been bricked up between floors, but the stairs themselves remained, a route without a destination.

Ornamental front door: during a stay in a creepy flat in Edinburgh (butterflies pinned to the wall, vanity published history of the site that recounted its role in the great Scottish Witch hunt) we were most shaken by the extra front door found in the dining room and opening onto a smooth wall. Especially the prospect that the letter box might spit out a letter one morning…

Leisure cave entrance: I once went on holiday to the Dordogne. There was a doorway over the front of a cave, but once inside it was pretty much just a small cave. The only furnishing was a full-sized ping pong table.

Hospital commode: Working in a hospital you have to respond fast to an emergency buzzer from anywhere. The poor young woman who accidentally triggered it while on the toilet was probably unprepared for the dozen staff who charged around to save the day.

Let Us Make It Up To You featuring Unlocked is at Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle on Friday 5th April. Tickets: £7 Full Price / £5 Concession
