Cambridge Festival of Drama 2022 Event 4

Comedy, farce, drama - the Cambridge Festival of Drama provides an opportunity to see the best of local amateur drama presenting a wide variety of plays in a mix of new writing and established pieces. Each session features two or three short plays, followed by comment and evaluation by a professional drama adjudicator – with the added frisson of a competitive element!

Brook for Nothing by Paul Adam Levy                                      Limitless Academy       NEW

Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram                       St John’s Players

This event will be followed by a Festival Awards Ceremony at 10.15pm. 

There’s plenty of opportunity between plays to meet friends in the bar and talk over what you’ve seen – will you agree with the adjudicator, or not? Will you pick this year’s winner?

You’ll find a full listing of the plays at

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.
