ADC Theatre
Thu 12 - Sat 14 March


Shameera Lin and Jamie Hancock

Corpsing is an absurd, haunting dark comedy about the politics surrounding family, grief and how death is understood across cultures, written by Shameera - a very-non-white Malaysian of mixed heritage - and Jamie, whom she calls ‘one of the whitest guys’ she knows.

What happens after we die? For Christina, the answer comes as a shock: nothing. No gateway guarded by an old bearded white man, no ascension into a beam of light, no dark tunnels. Instead, she’s left exactly where she was before – in her body, lying on a hospital bed, her mother just outside the door. There’s clearly been a mistake.

THU 6–£8, FRI £7–£9, SAT £8–£10

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.
