Michaelmas Week 3
After an explosive one night stand at the Corpus Playroom in June, 'Baby Steps' is back for two more nights! With a chunk of new material thrown in with last time's big hits, last year's freshers sketch show is fresher than ever.
Every October, 3000 teenagers are carried south by the University of Cambridge Admissions Storks (U.C.A.S.), and deposited onto a fleet of punts stationed on the River Cam near the village of Grantchester. The triumphal procession then advances down the river into the Cambridge city centre, and the ‘freshers’ are carefully hand-picked by the various colleges. This birthing process is known as ‘the pool’.
This year’s dregs, the final six freshers to be picked, unified by collective outrage at their misfortune, have banded together in the silliest way imaginable. They’re taking things one little bit at a time in the big world of Cambridge, so come along to track their baby steps. Join bleary-eyed freshlings Emmeline, Will, Aimee, Noah, Alex and Tom as they learn how to walk and then perform comedy in quick succession.
