On Wednesday 6 June, on the 74th anniversary of D-Day, the Arts Theatre team travelled to London to launch our production of David Haig’s fascinating wartime drama Pressure, following its hugely successful UK tour that started in Cambridge earlier in the year.
Pressure is the thrilling play about Group Captain James Stagg, the Scottish meteorologist tasked with predicting the weather conditions for the D-Day Landings.
Our major UK tour of our heartwarming production 84 Charing Cross Road has now begun and we can't wait to bring the bittersweet comedy and tender tale of transatlantic friendship back to Cambridge in a month's time, following it's well received run in 2016.
Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire is regarded by many as one of the greatest American plays of the 20th century. Opening on Broadway in December 1947, the play received the Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama in 1948 and in 1951 the play was adapted for the big screen. The film, which starred Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando, won a host of awards including the Academy Award for Best Actress and cemented the play's status in American drama history.
Rehearsals are now underway for the national tour of This House, James Graham's smash-hit political comedy examining the 1974 Hung Parliament.
I was thrilled to travel to central London last Friday to get a first look at the show and to hear from the director, writer and other members of the cast and creative team.
