THEATRE: This Week

Let theatre cast a soft glow of enlightenment over a damp and dismal Week Two.


At the ADC

Caravan Tue 18th October – Sat 22nd October at 7:45pm

The “harrowing and hilarious” Caravan “follows the quiet chaos and collapse of this increasingly clashing family”. Not for the faint-hearted, this award-winning play deals with family conflict in a claustrophobic environment and will draw the audience into the family’s “complex web of entanglement”.

Cambridge Shorts Tue 18th October at 11pm

A showcase of Cambridge’s aspiring student filmmakers, Cambridge Shorts is a “great way to experience more of the rapidly expanding film scene”. See six films ranging from “genre-subverting” Wild Western romance, to “informative and entertaining” student drug-dealing for one night only.

Have I Got to Mock the Buzzcocks Ja Vu: A Panel Show Sequel Wed 19th October – Sat 22nd October at 11pm

The catchily named HIGTMTBJA returns. Starring some of the biggest names in Cambridge comedy, this panel show is completely improvised and will include a “mix of games from your favourite panel shows”. After the original received 5* reviews, this “semi-fresh alternative comedy night” is back for a bigger and better evening of eclectic amusement.

At CORPUS PLAYROOM

Posh Tue 18th October 2016 – Sat 22nd October at 7pm

Corpus’ mainshow invites you to “carpe some fucking diem” in a “night you won’t be able to forget” – hopefully for the right reasons. An elite group of privately educated Cambridge undergraduates will be playing an “elite group of privately-educated Oxford undergraduates” as Posh examines themes of class and privilege. Very meta.

Offending the Audience Tue 18th October – Sat 22nd October at 9:30pm

If you don’t like plays, go see this one. Offending the Audience “is not a play” and will instead confuse your expectations to present an evening of “something different”. Get ready to be offended.
