Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

James Goss and Arvind Ethan David (based on the novel by Douglas Adams)

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

'These are the offices of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. Dirk Gently, owner and proprietor, at your service. Thank you for asking; the term ""holistic"" refers to my belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things.'

Dirk finds himself on the trail of a gruesome murderer who is somehow involved with the works of Samuel Coleridge, quantum physics, and the enigmatic study of the Cambridge Professor of Chronology. Ultimately, the stakes of the case are far greater than a single murder, but go to the fate of life on Earth. Confused? Don't be. Everything is connected.

Scenes of a Violent Nature

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.
