Thu 5 - Sat 7 September

Cambridge Festival of Drama

Nine short plays, a free improv session, and a workshop on writing your own play – a true celebration of drama! Watch the plays, form your own opinion, and then see if our professional adjudicator Chris Jaeger GoDA agrees with you. Meet your friends in the bar afterwards to chew the rag over a drink or two . . . .

The plays are an eclectic mix of new and established writing, of comedies, thrillers, drama and storytelling – you can see the full programme at They’re performed by theatre groups from in and around Cambridge, competing for awards for acting, directing and technical achievements.

Will you be among the first to see a major new performer or spot a new writing talent? Maybe you’ll find a group whose productions you’d like to see more of? Be an adventurous theatregoer and come and join us for the Cambridge Festival of Drama!



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. 

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
