Jailtime: An Unlawful Sketch Show

Frederick Upton and Christian Longstaff

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

A group of inmates, down on their luck, reminisce about their criminal lives: grand larceny, criminal conspiracy, and bad manners. As they recount how they landed in the joint, they hatch a plan: to escape the clutches of the prison and the neighbourhood watch, no matter the risk, and pull one last job.

Can our not-so-good fellas break free? Will they break even? Will the audience break out in laughter? No characters of crime, from Mob Bosses, Members of Parliament or Supermarket Trolley-Abandoners, are too out of place for this, the most sketchy of shows!!

This production is recommended for ages 15 and above.

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.
