20:00, Mon 22nd February 2016 at ADC Theatre (Bar)
Lent Week 6
In Verse returns to the ADC Bar! The Marlowe Society presents a night of monologues and duologues, a showcase of performances of classic or modern dramatic works in progress from the best performers Cambridge theatre has to offer.
The Marlowe Society was founded in 1907 by a group of students including Justin Brooke as a reaction against Victorian theatre and tradition. Its purpose was to revive the presentation of Shakespeare in Cambridge which had not been performed since 1886, and, in doing so, raise the standard of verse-speaking by actors. Since then, it has met with remarkable success, maintaining these traditions and acting as a nursery of talent and reform.
