Pembroke PlayersPembroke Players

Pembroke Players is doubtlessly the most friendly and by far the most active college drama society in Cambridge, currently putting on around 20 events a year, funding shows in venues of all shapes and sizes, from our own New Cellars to Corpus Playroom and the ADC. Our termly Smokers are also always well attended and hugely successful. We like to spread our wings a little further afield too, sending multiple shows to the Edinburgh Fringe each year!
