A student has been found dead of blood poisoning.
A professor has returned from sabbatical with, like, an awful new man.
And a lost pet's collar has been dredged up from the river Cam.

...Is it just us, or is it getting cold in here?

Welcome to the world of ❄ ONE DEGREE UNDER ❄, a chilling new podcast airing this Michaelmas. Inspired by the likes of Black Mirror and Inside No. 9, the show is an anthology of miniature mysteries all about life at university. Sometimes they'll be twisted, sometimes tragic, sometimes terrifying - and some weeks they might even be all three! - but with every last one of our tales our writers, cast and crew will keep you second-guessing the whole way through.

And so, as the nights grow short and the frost sets in, why not pop the kettle on and give our show a listen? We promise you, it'll be scarier than a DoS meeting...


UCATT 2019: Pygmalion - Alfred Doolittle

19:00, Tue 15th October 2019 - Sat 19th October 2019 at Corpus Playroom

‘Yes, you squashed cabbage leaf, you disgrace to the noble architecture of these columns, you incarnate insult to the English language, I could pass you off as the Queen of Sheba’

Phonetician Henry Higgins has got a project: to transform cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a duchess of high society. However, the one thing he doesn’t realise is that his ‘creation’ has a mind and a life of her own, and he can’t simply throw her back into the gutter when he's finished with his experiment.

A witty and slapstick reworking of the classical tale Pygmalion, this play is also a cutting attack against the treatment of women by men and the British class system.

Founded in 2017, we are a non-profit, student-run organisation representing some of the best theatrical, creative and technical talent the University of Cambridge has to offer. For the month of September we tour across the UK and East Asia performing and providing workshops in venues, schools and universities. It is our aim to open up cultural dialogues through lively performances and interactive workshops. We have the support of Oscar winning Emma Thompson (an ex Cambridge Footlight) as our patron and participants will be working with some of the most prestigious institutions in each of the countries.

It is a fantastic opportunity to put together a production that will be staged internationally, while exploring some incredible places on a highly subsidised tour. It's an unmissable project if you're interested in theatre beyond Cambridge, education or culture/cultural diplomacy.
