    The Marlowe Society, one of Cambridge University’s most prestigious drama societies, returns to the Cambridge Arts Theatre after its string of successful productions including Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Marlowe has launched the careers of some of Britain’s greatest actors including Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz, and continues its tradition of showcasing the best theatrical talent at the university.

    This year’s production will be Romeo and Juliet, directed by Josh Seymour. A Cambridge alumn, Seymor won Best Director at the Off-West End Awards in 2016 and was Runner-Up for the RTST Peter Hall Director Award in 2018. From 2014-15 he was Resident Assistant Director at the Donmar Warehouse. His previous credits include That Face (Orange Tree Theatre), Suddenly Last Summer (English Theatre Frankfurt) and The Narcissist (Chichester Festival Theatre).

    A tale of star-crossed lovers, family feuds and forbidden passion, Shakespeare’s story is stripped back to reveal a society where love and intimacy are dangerously prohibited...
