The Heywood Society- Heywood
The Heywood Society is the drama society of Peterhouse responsible for funding and putting on plays across the university. Within college, plays are performed in the capacious Friends of Peterhouse Theatre and in the beautiful deer park during Easter term. This year's Freshers' play was Doctor Faustus and recent productions include Abigail's Party, Twelfth Night, Table Manners, As You Like It, and a piece of original writing, The Orchard.
We pride ourselves on our involvement with a great variety of shows and thrive in providing opportunities for the creation of innovative and original theatre.
