Chris Born

This year has seen Chris in a whole load of plays: from playing the part of Joe Keller in All My Sons at the start of the year; to the amazing one man show Awkward Conversations with Animals I’ve F*cked; to taking part in The 24 Hour Plays and Attempts On Her Life, if you go to the theatre, you can’t have missed Chris.

Jonah Hauer-King 

Jonah won our hearts when he took the part of Alan Strang in Equus; you may also recognise him from After Miss Julie, Road and RENT. We look forward to seeing more!

George Longworth

With three years of extensive acting behind him, the past few months have been no exception. George performed in The Marlowe Showcase in March, and this year he’s also been in Of Mice and Men, The Witches of Eastwick, and blew away in his duo-role as Vittorio Vidal and Daddy Brubeck in Sweet Charity.

Harrison MacNeill

Harrison made his debut on the Cambridge stage this year. Starting off at the ADC with Kolenkov in the ‘vibrant and energetic’ You Can’t Take It With You, he also got involved in The 24 Hour Plays, took the part of Jack in The Weir and, most recently, multiple roles in Dreaming with Dali. This is only the beginning.

Toby Marlow

So many plays. This year you may have seen Toby take the rather daring role of Bianca in Othello. He’s acted in HATCH, Way to Heaven, The Quick and the Damned, Ajax440 and Spring Awakening. In addition to this, Toby was a soloist in Disney in Trinity 3: Be Our Guest!

Max Roberts

Max returned to the Cambridge stage this year with his ‘devastatingly powerful performance‘ as Lenny in Of Mice and Men. Since then he has played Michael in The Wives of Others, a Horseman in Equus and Olguin in The Quick and The Damned.

Ben Walsh

Ben has 10 plays on his camdram from this year alone. It’s madness. His part as Martin Dysart in Equus was a resounding success but we must not forget his performances in Blood Wedding, Pravda, Rope and The Beauty Queen of Leenane (and so many more).

Marco Young

Ever strong on his Shakespeare’s, Marco most recently played a glorious Hal in Henry IV Part 1. He was also Iachimo in Cymbeline, Exeter in Henry V and Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet. This year has also seen him in Saint Joan, Oedipus and Antigone and The Wives of Others.
