****In Extremis****/ Enduring Love by Howard Brenton

The story of Abelarde and Eloise and their ideological antagonist Bernard of Clairvaux.
A tale of *love* and *humour* that meditates on the relationship between *faith* and *power*, *humanism* and *fundamentalism*.
A conflict of *sex* and *religion* that resonates with Jesus College's past: a convent closed for "licentious" behaviour.
An open air play with a cast of twenty,
Let's repeople the college with some old ghosts....

Please email gd406@cam.ac.uk with any experience and ideas
(experience not necessary to apply)

Heart of Winter

7:45pm, Fri 7th July 2017 - Sat 8th July 2017, at Corpus Playroom
Summer Vacation

*Applications to Musical Direct*

Heart of Winter is a new, laugh-out-loud, one-woman song cycle – a Tell Me On a Sunday for the Hamilton era – which was performed live for the first time at the From Page 2 Stage showcase in London in November 2016. It tells the story of Kate, a 25 year old primary school teacher from up north, who has just broken up with her boyfriend. As the song cycle progresses, we are witness to her innermost thoughts as she goes through the process of getting over Adam. She is a character who is very easy to identify with, and her songs are both hilarious and moving.

We are looking for a Musical Director both to provide creative input on this entirely sung-through show, and to accompany the performer for both performances - only the second time it has ever been staged. Musical knowledge is key, and experience either MDing or AMDing musicals is preferred, but applications from newcomers are encouraged! Since this show is outside of term, it would require either living close to or in Cambridge, or being able to come fairly frequently between the end of term and the performances.

To apply, please send a statement of interest outlining why you are interested and any experience you have to Josh Cleary at jc952@cam.ac.uk. If you have any questions, please email on the same address. We look forward to hearing from you!

Deadline: Sunday 30th April 11:00pm
