In Werewolves The Improv Show the audience is taken back to medieval times. The players introduce them to a small town that gets struck by werewolves. One by one they start killing of the villagers. Who will survive? And who can be trusted? It’s up to the audience to unmask the werewolves before it’s too late…

Werewolves is based on popular partygames like The Werewolves of Millers Hollow, Maffia or The Resistance. However, the audience doesn’t need to know these games to enjoy the show.

The format was created in 2010 by  Jacqueline Fleskens en Sytse Wilman. The first show was played by the Amsterdam-based improv-group Placebo. It was an instant succes for both the actors and the audience. And so many shows followed, by other groups all across the Netherlands and Belgium. In 2017 – after many shows – Sytse Wilman and Belgian improviser Ben Verhoeven took the initiative to gather players from different groups to form an all-star cast. The goal: put an English show on stage and spread the Werewolf-virus across the globe.

Werewolves is mostly performed in theatres but on occasion, it’s been played on location as well. This video (in Dutch) gives an impression of a performance by the Dutch group Placebo in a forest:
