Lent Week 7
A lot of stuff has happened before now. The dinosaurs were around before you were even born, for example. This show of occasionally true snippets lays siege to the history books, doctors the documents, annuls the annals, crucifies the chronicles, blitzkriegs the bulletins and pillages the village. They offer answers to all those questions you ask yourself about history, and some you don’t: “What happens if you try to fit the names of all 267 popes into songs by the Beach Boys?”
The Footlights Spring Revue is one of the biggest and funniest shows of the year. On the 125th anniversary of the word-famous comedy club, Snippets promises to be another innovative addition to the Cambridge Footlights’ illustrious history.
