The Marlowe Society Marlowe
The Marlowe is one of Cambridge's oldest student drama societies, and is dedicated to high-quality performances of Elizabethan, verse, and non-realist plays including classics and plays rarely seen on the professional stage. Its alumni include Rupert Brooke, Trevor Nunn, Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, Corin Redgrave, Sam Mendes, Rachel Weisz and many others.
We present an annual production in the Cambridge Arts Theatre, with a professional Director and Design team and student casts and production crews. We also put on the other performances, talks, workshops and events throughout the year.
The Marlowe also strongly promotes new student play writing, annually awarding the Other Prize, and running a writers' group. The society prides itself on being welcoming and innovative, and linking the thriving world of Cambridge drama to the professional theatrical scene.
