The Fletcher Players SocietyFletcher Players

The Fletcher Players are Corpus Christi’s resident drama society, committed to funding and programming original, daring and exciting works of student theatre.

The society is most closely linked to the Corpus Playroom, one of Cambridge’s most popular theatrical spaces. The Playroom was opened in 1979 by Caroline Oulton and Mark McCrum, and was run by the Fletcher Players until handing over management to the Cambridge Arts Theatre in 2001 and the ADC Theatre in 2011.

The Fletcher Players now serves primarily as a funding body, providing financial support for several shows every term at the Corpus Playroom and ADC Theatre. Every Lent Term, the Fletcher Players presents a Freshers’ Play at the Playroom that is directed and performed entirely by first-year students from Corpus Christi College.

The society is also dedicated to encouraging the creation of original dramatic works, both within the Corpus community and throughout Cambridge. For example, Smorgasbord, a night of new writing, provides a space for new content to be honed and developed once every Michaelmas and Lent.
