- February 2007Trinity Hall’s Preston Society presents… NO EXIT By Jean- Paul Sartre Translated by Stuart Gilbert. Jean-Paul Sartre’s haunting play, ‘No Exit’, brings three people into a room, where they will live together. Forever. They will never sleep. They will never leave. They will never die. Slowly, insidiously they realise that the fire and brimstone of their childhood Sunday Schools are not through the next door; there is no blistered demon with red-hot poker coming to tax their physical stamina; they are there to torture one another. Each mind becomes more dangerous and explosive than any Medieval Christian fairytale. They love and hate and desire and disgust and fight defiantly and concede quickly and, finally, come to realisation that “Hell is… other people”. The Preston Society goes in a new direction to explore the historic surroundings we are privileged to have in Cambridge, performing this powerful play in the awe-inspiring setting of the Graham Storey Room. Complete with bar and cabaret style seating. You are cordially invited. Venue: The Graham Storey Room, Trinity Hall. Dates: 14th, 15th, 16th February 2007 Time: Arrive at 7:30p.m. for drinks. Performance starts at 8p.m. No admittance after 7:50p.m.
- November 2006Join the cream of Trinity Hall’s comic talent on an unforgettable journey to Peking for the most sizzling musical of the Cambridge term. Featuring a much sought-after magic lamp, and a feast of (sometimes incredibly) bad jokes, ‘Aladdin – the Wok n Roll Panto’ is a raucos rickshaw-ride from pauper to Prince, accompanied by familiar tunes that making singing along irresistible.

- May 2005"Clap hands for you and me and all of us whose voices count for nothing in this world." As a young boy awaits his release from prison after serving time for the murder of a child, a mother pushes her small daughter into a stage career in which the rule for success is "Talent, Teeth and Tits". Written at the time of the impending release of the Bulger killers, Peter Morris' controversial work was hailed by The Telegraph as "a brilliant play that begins by making you laugh and ends by making you shudder".
