We intend to have live music and sounds created by the ensemble, and a film-esque score running through this epic. Composers must be creative and ambitious!

Head of Puppetry - to design and head up a team to create a number of puppets for the show throughout Lent term! Puppets play a vital role in the production, and we’re excited to work closely with someone to design and bring to life these puppets. There’s lots of room here for experimentation, so don’t be put off!

Porngeography is looking for a generally amazing person to take charge of sourcing props and helping with other technical bits and bobs!

An absurdist and scatological romp through just what goes on behind the camera on a porn shoot, this hilarious piece of highly experimental Austrian theatre will be brought to you live for its UK premiere. Join the cast as they run this psychosexual gamut; from dramatic auto(mobile)-fellatio, through to the consumption of cold soup off a dead puppy(!), Porngeography promises that you will leave the studio a changed person (Edit: for better or for worse).

Should be a fairly low commitment role and very simple as it's a larkum show, may require you operating lights/sound for a night or two in addition to helping rig/design, but sure to be fun fun fun! Drop us an email if you're interested and include a few lines about why the show caught your attention/any previous experience (none required!) you might have :)

‘Are we right? What is right? And can we have a vote on it?'

The channel island of Bullwick is in the middle of an election, but the newspapers are empty, the polls haven't moved, and the result seems certain. Until one of the candidates start telling people not to vote for him. What is the line between the personal and the political? Is happiness the same as ignorance? Is that a grenade, or an avocado? Answer all these questions and more.

Beige is a bleak political comedy that promises to be equal parts absurd, nihilistic, and hilarious.

Looking for

  • Set Designer

‘The Clean House’ is a whimsical romantic comedy centred on Matilde, a Brazilian cleaning woman who would rather be a comedian. She has come to America after the death of both her parents, but is too depressed to clean, and only dreams of creating the perfect joke.

This is a fresh production of a play which incorporates elements of music, dance, projections and other media; creating spectacle, naturalising elements of the supernatural, without compromising the emotional or psychological integrity of the characters. We aim to celebrate the cultures of our Latin American characters through our multi-media and moments of Portuguese and Spanish dialogue, and use this as an opportunity for authentic representation.

We welcome applications from all levels of experience. As always enthusiasm is the only necessity.

59 BC.
Rome.

Julius Caesar's populist faction is on the rise and the only thing stopping them are the "good men" of the Roman senate.

We need to fill the following roles...

COSTUME DESIGNER
-We're thinking traditional Roman dress with a few modern twists. Let us know your ideas!

SET DESIGNER
-Help us turn the unique surroundings of Peterhouse Theatre into a living, breathing Roman senate.

STAGE MANAGER
-You'll be on hand to make sure each performance runs as smoothly as it can, and to liaise with the costume and set designers.

If you're interested in any of the above roles, send an email to Elliott (elw60@cam.ac.uk) with a few lines on why you're interested and what you think you would bring to the show. If you have any relevant experience do let us know, but equally don't be put off if you don't- we'll be able to lend advice. Any questions about any of the roles, don't hesitate to send us an email.
