The ADC theatre's entrance on Park StreetLOUIS ASHWORTH

Exam term can be stressful for many, so why not use your evenings at the beginning of this term to take some well earned time off, relax, and enjoy a trip to the theatre. Below are a list of shows on in Cambridge at the start of term.

Flow- A Documentary Short Film, 12:00, 25th April, The Heong Gallery, Downing College

A short film that seeks to visualise emotions and senses using paints and imagery.

 We Go Down With the Ship, 16:00, 28th-29th April, Homerton College Studio

A student written piece that responds to the climate emergency. It merges ‘verbatim scenes’ with its own satirical dialogue, and also draws on physical movement sequences, poetry and philosophy.

The Importance of Being Earnest, 19:00, 29th-10th April, Christ’s Chapel

This timeless classic is being put on in a unique space. Who can resist the wit of ol’ Wilde?

Scratch Night, 20:00, 2nd May, Blue Moon

A night of original work, in the hope of raising money to take When We Were Normal by Maddie Lynes to the Edinburgh Fringe. Always good to support fellow 'thesps' in their endeavours!

Public House 5, 19:30, 3rd May, The Portland Arms

A one-time performance consisting of anonymous sexual assault/harassment testimonies, all of which are by Cambridge students and alumni. It aims to be an annual addressing of the issue of sexual violence, and 50% of the proceeds raised will be donated to Cambridge Rape Crisis.

The Son, 19:45, 3rd-7th May, ADC Theatre

The Guardian call Florian Zeller ‘the most exciting playwright of our time’. Perhaps you should put their theory to the test, by seeing this portrayal of teenage depression and divorce. 


Mountain View

The Passion raises difficult questions in the post #MeToo era

However Belligerent the Cactus, 21:30, 3rd-7th May, Corpus Playroom

The title alone seems interesting! This piece explores life’s performativity, and therefore what it means to be authentic.

Blue Workers: The Musical!, 23:00, 4th-6th May, ADC Theatre

An ode to the backstage workers, who shall no doubt get their deserved praise in this original musical.

Garry Bonds’ Balanced Breakfasts, 19:00, 3rd-7th May, Corpus Playroom

A brand-new comedy drama, that also asks the big questions of what you would sacrifice to be the best. Baseball knowledge is not required, but fear of ghosts may be a problem…
