The Waves

Virginia Woolf, adapted by Sarah Taylor

Bernard, Neville, Louis, Jinny, Rhoda and Susan are childhood friends. Bound by their mutual love and hate, their lives remain interwoven from their shared school days and despite their divergent paths through adulthood. The Waves follows these six individual but irrevocably connected souls as they navigate their various experiences, their communal griefs, and their relationships to one another and the world around them.

Come and see the novel that Virginia Woolf called her 'play-poem' brought to the Cambridge stage for the first time, in an adaptation which celebrates multimedia and innovative theatre. The Waves is a lyrical expression of love, loss and longing, which promises to be both evocative and emotional.

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.
