Verdict: a must-see this autumn!
Recently I hopped on a train at Cambridge Station to travel to Oxford to see People, Places & Things ahead of its visit to Cambridge Arts Theatre next month. Having heard about its highly praised and sold-out seasons at the National Theatre and in the West End, I was extremely excited to see the show... and it did not disappoint!
If there's one sure-fire way to get the Arts Theatre team well and truly geared up for the festive season... it's the annual pantomime photo shoot!
Last week we invited a few of the brilliant Jack and the Beanstalk cast to the theatre, stitched them into (very sparkly) costumes and our photographer, Tony Meehan, snapped away.
Next week sees the stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's internationally bestselling novel The Kite Runner hitting our stage. A haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, The Kite Runner follows one man's journey to confront his past and find redemption.

This month sees the return of the celebrated author Peter James with a thrilling new stage adaptation of his best-selling novel, Not Dead Enough, starring Laura Whitmore, Bill Ward and Stephen Billington.
Here's what Peter James had to say about his books, writing spine-chilling thrillers and seeing his words brought alive on stage...
Firstly, how would you sum up the plot of Not Dead Enough, without giving too much away!
Whilst digging through our archives, we discovered a Cambridge Arts Theatre 'behind the scenes' gem... a photograph of our Box Office in 1989 before the redevelopment began in 1993.
Here's the Box Office team hard at work after new computers were installed - the makeshift Box Office sign proves it!
