Publisher Spineless Wonders joins forces with actors from Bang Bang Rodeo to present this unique literary event. Watch the chocolate wheel spin and land on a 200-word microfiction that nobody has heard before – especially not these improv specialists. Then enjoy the show as they make each story their plaything, accompanied by music composed on the spot by the talented Sarah Gaul. The result is edgy, entertaining and creative mayhem.
