An earthquake leaves two strangers buried alive in an office building. No air, no supplies, no communication with the outside world. As they wait and hope for rescue to come, they must come together to pass the time, discussing life, death, and everything in between. As the air grows thinner and the light dims they will learn more about each other and themselves than they could have ever imagined. But is everything truly as it seems?
A play about friendship, loneliness, life, death, fear, and happiness, Oxygen will ask the audience to question their own morality and relationships as the characters on stage do the same.
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.
The Larkum Studio is accessed through the far side of the ADC Bar.
