Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club presents...

Lent Week 4
“Lots of talk about people disappearing. Pomona’s a place that finds itself in those conversations. I don’t know why. But if you’re looking for someone lost… Might be a place to look.”
Gale collects the blood types of her employees. Charlie guards the gates to the underground warehouse in Pomona. They don’t know why, but they don’t ask any questions - because deep down, they know they don’t want the answers. As Ollie’s search for her missing sister leads her deeper into the dark belly of the city centre, she discovers horrors which reveal to her why it’s easier not to get ‘involved’. Unsettlingly funny and deeply challenging, Pomona tears the sheet off our modern world to confront with the horrors hidden beneath. Blurring the line between fantasy and reality, it leaves us questioning where the nightmare ends and real life begins.
Described as a ‘fierce dystopian drama with terrific comic edge’, Alistair McDowall’s Pomona jumps between and blends together nightmarish reality and horror role-play games, as we gradually piece together exactly what is happening underground.
