In the centennial year of the 1917 Battle of Passchendaele the Corpus Playroom presents John Wilson’s classic play, ‘Hamp’.

Amidst the horror of World War I, Private Hamp, a nonentity whose undistinguished simplicity borders on simple-mindedness, has been plucked from the grime of a Lancashire mill town and flung down in the bloodsoaked mud of Passchendaele. But when one day Hamp scrambles out of a shell hole & walks away from battle, the Army finds itself compelled to notice his existence. He is court-martialled for desertion in the face of the enemy. Is everyone too preoccupied with the war to trouble about his 'insignificant crime’, as Hamp reassures himself, or will he pay the ultimate price?

Lent term's week 8 Corpus Main is looking for a creative & enthusiastic technical team to bring this poignant play to life.

Applications should include:

They trust each other, having been together three years. But the process of devising the play reveals just how much of a defining role race plays in their relationship and individual experiences of the world, throwing up unresolved issues and - challenging them as writers and actors, as well as the audience to think critically about the intersection between race, gender and sexuality. A love story that asks questions and who and why we love and the things that separate us from one another.

The stifling heat of Andalusia, 1936.

Interepreted by an entirely female cast, this is a tale of generations at odds with one another, of the assertion of identity above conformity and of the drive to be human.

Lent Week 5

Looking for

  • ~ ~ SET DESIGNER ~ ~
  • Lighting Designer/Op
  • Sound Designer/Op

This political, existential and comedic drama will be a collaborative production, aiming to push the boundaries of the Cambridge theatre scene, with a view to going to the Edinburgh Fringe 2017.

In your application, please state why this project excites you, any previous experience and why you think you'd be brilliant for the job.

This enormously exciting project offers the chance to revive an unjustly neglected work, unperformed in the UK this century. An éxposé on the nature of politics, its relevance to today’s climate is achingly topical. With themes covering philosophy, politics, identity and gender, lines are blurred between theatre and reality, leaving the audience to question the nature of society as a whole.

We are hoping to be ambitious with the artistic creation of the show, chaneling surrealism, monochrome and minimalism, but would love to collaborate on creating a beautifully conceptualised set in the Pembroke space.

If you want to know more about our ideas, or are interested, please send an email to Sophie at sarl2 and Tom at tb575! We look forward to hearing from you.

Contact: sarl2@cam.ac.uk, tb575@cam.ac.uk
