Polis, ADC Bar, Monday 5th at 8pm

Constellations, Judith E. Wilson Studio, Tuesday to Sunday, except for Thursday at 8pm

One relationship, infinite possibilities and lots of honey. This play was first performed upstairs at the Royal Court, won the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play in 2012, and is being performed FREE in Cambridge for you.



Locke, Arts Picturehouse, on this week

Shot in real time without leaving the confines of a car on the M6, Steven Knight’s Locke has been received to glowing reviews thanks to the incredibly powerful performance of Tom Hardy – surely one of the most talented (and painfully masculine) actors of our generation. Playing at the Arts Picturehouse all week.

Anchorman 2, DVD release

If you fancy something a bit lighter (go on, give that overworked noggin a bit of well-deserved respite) then you’ll be glad to hear Anchorman 2, sequel to the most quoted film of our generation, is released nationwide this week. Worth getting hold of for the fight scene alone, which features more A-list cameos in five minutes than most recent comedy releases combined. Don’t act like you’re not impressed…
