Dragtime! Presents: Gunpowder, Treason, and Thot

Remember remember the 8th through 11th of November as Dragtime!'s kings, queens and inbetweens explode back onto the stage this Gay Fawkes Night with their fourteenth hit show at the ADC!

As the nights draw in and the air gets colder, make your midwinter a little less bleak and join Cambridge's premiere drag troupe as they lure you in to an exciting world of intrigue and mystery, featuring disruptive and subversive acts from the hottest drag talent around. No strangers to rebelling against political authority, our performers have come straight from the basement of the Haus of Lords to bring you an exhilarating cabaret of (bon)fire lipsyncs, singing, pole dance, spoken word and more!

This production is recommended for ages 16 and over.

ADC Theatre


WED-THU (£7.50-£10.50), FRI-SAT (£8.50-£11)

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 


When you arrive at the ADC Theatre, there are power assisted doors to the Box Office. In the foyer there is a lift which leads up to the bar and auditorium. The accessible toilet is located on the ground floor across the foyer. Further information can be found here.
