A Theatrical Evening in Cambridge

Share Published on October 24, 2017

Cambridge always promises a great night of theatre, as one might expect of a city that launched the careers of actors Sir Ian McKellen, Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson.

Those looking for critically acclaimed plays shouldheard first to the Cambridge Arts Theatre, founded by John Maynard Keynes in 1936.

The best chance of spotting an up-and-coming star of stage or screen will be a performance at the ADC Theatre, which is run entirely by students of Cambridge University.

The Junction is another place where edgier, contemporary theatre is to be found, often with a comedic bent.

The 1836-seater Corn Exchange auditorium is the city’s largest performance space, featuring the most established names in theatre, music and comedy.
