A Man Walks into a Cheese Shop

Sure, sketch shows are fun, but would you want to live in one?

In this show, the protagonist has no choice. Follow a day in their scripted life as they jump from one sketch to another, confronting everyday situations that inevitably spiral outside out of their control into unpredictable, absurd, and, for our protagonist at least, incredibly frustrating deadends.

In this show, walking down the street to work, going to the dentist or ordering a meal at a restaurant are hijacked by comedic tropes from across the broad spectrum of the sketch genre, as the protagonist’s life slowly turns into a sinister nightmare.

Will you join them as they search for a way to escape? Because even if they do, what will they find on the other side?

This production is recommended for ages 15 and above.

ADC Theatre



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.
