    Making New Work

    Now officially a Locomotive initiative, Late Night Knife Fight is a joyful proving ground for improvisors creating new work and ensembles, offering development, coaching, and collaboration across companies and styles. An opportunity to catch the next big thing in improv before it takes flight, work developed at LNKF has gone on to full seasons and festivals, with The National Average, Two Dope Teens (Best Improv Nelson Fringe 2018), The History Boy, Magnus Steele, and more in development.
