Scary Old World

Do you like science fiction? Do you like space hotels? Do you like hierarchy? Well then, come closer and take a peek, for we have the sketch show for you.

Travel through the different rooms of the space hotel, and notice for yourself the different occupants and their respective plights. See the scientist creating a new weapon of mass destruction, see the CEO of an AI company fall in love with one of his own creations, see the drunk and depressed manager of the hotel. See humanity in all its depressing highs and even more depressing lows!

It is all waiting for you. As we go through each room, we'll travel up the floors, and up the hierarchy. We may even reach the penthouse suite..

This production is recommended for ages 18 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.
