Streaming tickets are only available for viewers in the UK.

The Trouble With Today's Women is a verbatim piece of devised theatre inspired by Sudha Bhuchar's The Trouble With Asian Men. With performers and collaborators in different geographical locations, the show explores the experiences of women of colour in the modern world and grapples with the dissonance that they face navigating their personal lives. This production will explore pluralities of positions instead of a single meta-narrative, through the authentic voices of performers that will navigate themes of fragmented identity. Developed through workshops and interviews, personal stories on the themes of mental health, alienation and third-cultural identity, sexual harassment, the violence of the gender binary within multicultural contexts, amongst others, have been adapted for a multi-media performance.

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.
