Brickhouse Theatre Company is the resident theatre company of Robinson College, Cambridge. Every year we hold at least five productions in our two wonderful venues: the well equipped 230-seater Robinson Auditorium and the beautiful outside amphitheatre, the Maria Björnson Theatre. We also help fund shows in other venues around Cambridge. Recent Brickhouse shows have included: 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat', 'Songs for a New World', 'Jerusalem', 'Cymbeline', 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and Barber's 'Vanessa'. Every year we also host the Gilbert and Sullivan Society's freshers' show and accommodate for the performance of new student writing, which in the past have included 'The Losters' and 'The Connection'. On top of all this, Brickhouse hosts regular comedy nights in Robinson's Red Brick Cafe/Bar

Applications for show funding, or to direct a show in either of our two venues, are always welcome. We are also keen to here from people interested in getting involved in other aspects of the theatre, from light and sound, to set design, to front of house. While we will advertise for specific projects, please feel free to apply speculatively using the application form available on our website: www.brickhouse.soc.srcf.net!

Brickhouse remains very open to members of other colleges and responds positively to all interest expressed. Feel free to get in contact at any time, whatever your interest or experience!

Brickhouse Theatre Company posted: May Week is a time for laughter and having fun, but why not take a break from that to come to Robinson College for a unique event – Sketch Factor! Small teams of comedians will be performing a repertoire of sketches in desperate need of your validation. There will be drinks, judges and prizes, all in the bucolic, melancholic, choleric setting of the open air theatre. Bring sun cream, and we’ll bring you the sunny side of May Week.* *No guarantee of sun on the day.

Set entirely in three bedrooms, over the course of one evening, the play traces an absurd series of events as Malcolm and Kate throw a housewarming party. Chaos ensues, a few late-night visits are made, and no one manages to get any sleep... Featuring an all-star cast, with members of the Footlights and Impronauts, and many up and coming actors, this show appeals to all and is certainly not to be missed!

Brickhouse Theatre Company posted: Brickhouse Theatre Company is excited to be bringing Alan Ayckbourn's hilarious comedy, 'Bedroom Farce' to the ADC in May! Tickets available online now: https://www.adctheatre.com/bedroomfarce - - - BEDROOM FARCE TUES 23RD TO SAT 27TH MAY 2017 ADC THEATRE Bedroom Farce is a hilarious comedy by legendary British playwright Alan Ayckbourn, set over the course of one night in the bedrooms of three couples: Ernest and Deila, Jan and Nick, and Malcolm and Kate. A fourth couple, Trevor and Susannah are having problems and their presence at Malcolm and Kate's housewarming party is dreaded by all. With Nick stuck in bed, Jan goes alone, but upon seeing Trevor, an old flame, things don't go quite as she planned. Nobody gets much sleep as people end up in and out of each other's bedrooms, in a rib-tickling insight into the private lives of the English.

Brickhouse Theatre Company posted: * * Jerusalem * * Thursday 23rd – Saturday 25th February 2017, 7:30pm Robinson College Auditorium Next week, following its relative absence from the theatre circuit, Brickhouse is bringing Jerusalem back with a bang. Sex, drugs and a fair amount of Morris dancing are all on the agenda as the characters celebrate St George’s day in style. Get lost in the fantastical world of Johnny Rooster Byron and his gang of waifs and strays as they reminisce, prophesize and lament the state of our green and pleasant land. A hugely versatile cast guides us through the highs and lows of this momentous day. With Lee leaving for Australia and Kennet and Avon council hot on Johnny’s trail, there’s a sense that this rag tag group will never be the same again. Watch as they struggle to let go and eventually come to terms with a life of rural banality, in a play that is in one minute hysterically funny and the other deeply revealing. The show’s directors, Emma Snell and Rowan Hall Maudslay say of the production: “We felt like the world of theatre is so often crowded with lofty, inaccessible pieces and we wanted to put on something utterly unpretentious. Jerusalem is that play, its bold and loud and thoroughly entertaining. A play for people who don’t like plays as well as for those who do.” ‘Jerusalem’ runs from Thursday 23rd to Saturday 25th February at 7:30pm in the Robinson College Auditorium. Tickets are only £8 (£6 concession) and can be purchased online: https://brickhouse.tessera.info More details about this, and all of our other shows can be found on our website: www.brickhouse.soc.srcf.net or on our social media channels: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@BrickhouseTC). Also, don’t miss out on seeing ‘Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead’, which continues tonight at 7:30pm! Tickets available both online and on the door. We look forward to seeing you at the Brickhouse soon!
