The Cholmondeleys LADIES AND GENTLEMEN Monday 9 October, 7.30pm

Living Spit THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII Wednesday 27 September, 7.30pm Two Actors. Too Many Characters. One Big Ego Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There’s no escaping that. Stu McLoughlin doesn’t really look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go. After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard (Bristol Old Vic) and Stu (Kneehigh) are at their wits end. Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything... But can two of the South West’s favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other? With live original music, embroidery, barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an illresearched lesson in crossdressing Tudor history that you’ll never forget. Suitable for ages 12+ Contains mature themes. New season opening show offer – all tickets £5.00 each!

Inspired by Music Hall, Ladies and Gentlemen is a witty and absorbing visual spectacle in which choreography (Lea Anderson), music (Steve Blake) and design (Tim Spooner) conjure the all but forgotten stage show of six has-been performers. Besieged by ever shifting, inscrutable and enigmatic props, Man, Woman, the Twins, Pet and the Other One present misremembered routines and hazily recollected punchlines in a complex and tightly knit choreography of objects accompanied by sound and music they perform themselves. The result is an eccentric, surreal and often hilarious theatrical experience where regret and failure meet. ‘A delightfully surreal theatrical gem’ (The Guardian) Tickets: £12.50 (£10.50 concessions, £8.50 student/child) Further discounts apply for Anglia Ruskin students & staff

Mischief Company RED Wednesday 11 October, 7.30pm Mischief Company is breathing new life into the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood with a new piece of energetic and provocative physical theatre. Through intricate storytelling and dark humour, Mischief lead you through the forest and into the world of RED. This is no fairy tale! Influenced by Dante’s Inferno, we watch as three characters; Red, The Wolf & The Devil, embark on a journey of love, sacrifice and betrayal. Watch as the characters descend into animalistic madness in an evening of slick movement, bold theatrical imagery and pounding music. Suitable for ages 15+ Contains adult themes. Tickets: £12.50 (£10.50 concessions, £8.50 student/child) Further discounts apply for Anglia Ruskin students & staff


Wizard Presents WHY THE WHALES CAME

Ballet Cymru

Sunday 15 October, 2.30pm

Saturday 21 October, 7.30pm

THE LIGHT PRINCESS

Multi-award-winning performer and storyteller Danyah Miller vividly brings to life another enchanting tale by Michael Morpurgo. Children Gracie and Daniel have been forbidden to go near the mysterious and seemingly dangerous Birdman. But messages and clues intrigue them and, after being lost at sea in the fog and stranded on his tiny island, they begin to unravel the Birdman’s secrets, the villagers’ fears and superstitions and learn why the whales came to the island. Suitable for ages 7+ All tickets: £8.00

The new full length ballet by Ballet Cymru for 2017, The Light Princess is the lightest and brightest dance event of the year.

Dyad Productions JANE EYRE – AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY Tuesday 17 & Wednesday 18 October, 7.30pm From the creators of Dalloway, Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth and Christmas Gothic… Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation. Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Brontë’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities.

Using elements of circus and outstanding classical choreography the story draws inspiration from Sleeping Beauty, telling the story of a princess afflicted by a constant weightlessness, unable to get her feet on the ground, until she finds a love that brings her down to earth. Featuring groundbreaking video projections and stunningly vibrant costumes The Light Princess will transport you to a world of laughter, beauty and wonder. George MacDonald’s quirky and timeless tale takes on a new life, interpreted in dance by some of the finest dancers in the world to the haunting and lyrical music of Catrin Finch.

An epic comedy-drama of feuds and farming over four generations.

What do you think of when you hear the words ‘Stripper’, ‘Escort’, ‘Pornstar’?

By 1914 Kilham Wold Farm – 82 acres of up and down near Driffield, East Yorkshire – had been in Harrison hands for 30 years, taken from a local landowner after unwittingly winning a wager. With war now raging around them, brothers William and Alfred have to face their heritage and tirelessly fight for their families’ survival against a rapidly changing world.

A street worker giving marital advice...

From Richard Bean, writer of the international hit One Man, Two Guvnors, Harvest was first performed at the Royal Court in September 2005. For the first time a 6-strong ensemble present this modern agricultural saga, an epic story spanning the 20th century.

Actors of Dionysus ANTIGONE Tuesday 31 October & Wednesday 1 November, 7.30pm A brother condemned to walk forever in the shadow of death. A family teetering on the brink of catastrophe. A world where one girl dares to take a stand. This blistering new adaptation sees Sophocles’ tragedy reimagined in a dystopian landscape, where fate is written in code and where drones flock across the skies. Brought to life by innovative theatre company Actors of Dionysus, this production combines bold ideas with passionate and visceral physical theatre.

A webcam model and her ventriloquist dummy… A daughter making career choices in a male-dominated world… Whether you want to save us, judge us, lust for us or empathise, come down for a night of opera to hip-hopera, contemporary dance to pole dance, where sex workers take back the stage to tell our own stories in our own words. Created and performed by Sex Workers and friends, Sex Worker’s Opera offers an unflinchingly honest, upliftingly human insight into the lives of sex workers locally and around the world. Suitable for ages 16+ Tickets: £12.50 (£10.50 concessions, £8.50 student/child) Further discounts apply for Anglia Ruskin students & staff

Protein Dance BORDER TALES Wednesday 8 November, 7.30pm Award winning company Protein presents a thoughtprovoking yet poignant commentary on multicultural Britain through dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences. Border Tales looks at post-Brexit Britain seen through the eyes of an international cast and gazes satirically on stereotypical thinking about migrant outsiders and bigoted homelanders. ‘Excellently performed… Border Tales is a big, brave, cacophonous attempt to show what it means to live in multicultural Britain today.’ (The Guardian) Suitable for ages 12+ Contains strong language

Shakespeare Schools Foundation is proud to present the world’s largest youth drama festival at the Mumford Theatre - join us for a series of unique Shakespeare productions staged by local schools.

Theatre Centre TWIST

Theatrical Niche Ltd LADY WINDERMERE’S FAN

Tuesday 21 November, 7.30pm

Saturday 2 & Monday 4 December, 7.30pm

His home is dust. His friends are few. His hands are as rough as the seas he has crossed. In a radical reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, we follow one refugee’s journey, buffeted between borders and bad company. Humanising the anonymous plight of our generation, Twist transforms Oliver’s struggle for sanctuary into a modern tale framed by the global crisis fast defining the 21st century. Teeming with Dickens’ audacious characters and invigorated by the voice of rising-star Chino Odimba, this retelling marks a bold collaboration for Theatre Centre, pioneers of new writing for young audiences. Suitable for ages 13+ Contains mature themes Tickets: £12.50 (£10.50 concessions, £8.50 student/child) Further discounts apply for Anglia Ruskin students & staff

Blackeyed Theatre Company THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE Monday 27 – Wednesday 29 November, 7.30pm Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he’s close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong…or very right. And suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde. A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London’s fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on...treat your dark side! Suitable for ages 11+ Tickets: £12.50 (£10.50 concessions, £8.50 student/child)

When a mysterious new beauty enters high society, the in-crowd are sent scattering out, bent backwards and flattened low to find out exactly who they’re dealing with. Oscar Wilde’s raucous social comedy pulls apart the intricacies of etiquette and flips expectation rump-overhead in this scathingly funny satire. Exploiting themes of stereotype, superficiality and sacrifice, Theatrical Niche tour this high-speed adaptation across the country, using signature touches of commedia dell’arte and exaggerated choreography. Suitable for ages 12+ Tickets: £12.50 (£10.50 concessions, £8.50 student/child) Further discounts apply for Anglia Ruskin students & staff

A BALM IN GILEAD Zion Baptist Church, East Road, Cambridge Monday 15 January, 5.00pm A play with music, conceived and directed by Sharon J. Reives, with the London Adventist Chorale. In association with the Department of Music and Performing Arts. In 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee, the Labour Movement and the Civil Rights Movement came together in a monumental struggle of human and public employee rights. Rev. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. championed the cause of 1300 sanitation workers who went on strike demanding their basic rights to organise a union, to gain a living wage, and to receive the respect and dignity due all working men and women. This is a faith story. The Memphis Sanitation Workers were supported by the local faith community. Each meeting began and ended with prayer, which also included great anthems of faith such as: Ain’t Gon’ Let Nobody Turn Me ‘Round and Leaning on the Everlasting Arms to name a few. The mantra of their movement was I AM A MAN. Their struggle was about far more than a 15-centsan-hour wage increase. Furthermore, they effectively used the weapons of nonviolent resistance to promote social change. It was the perfect platform for Dr King’s Poor People’s Campaign. Dr King came to Memphis to support the striking workers and was tragically assassinated.

FLARE: MA DEGREE SHOW 2017 Ruskin Gallery Friday 8 – Thursday 14 September Private View: Thursday 7 September, 5.00pm Weekdays: 10.00am-8.00pm Sat/Sun & Thurs 14 Sept: 10.00am-4.30pm The MA Show brings together students graduating from the MA Computer Games Development (Art), MA Fashion Design, MA Film & Television Production, MA Fine Art, MA Graphic Design & Typography, MA Illustration & Book Arts, MA Photography and MA Printmaking programmes at Cambridge School of Art. It is an end-of-course exhibition that marks an important stage of personal and professional development, showcasing final artworks that are underpinned by rigorous research and experimentation in different fields. As such it makes a significant contribution to the arts in the city, offering the public an opportunity to engage with new work by artists working at an advanced level. CONSUMED: STILLED LIVES Ruskin Gallery Thursday 21 September - Saturday 14 October Private View: Thursday 28 September, 5.00pm I am what I consume, I am an advert for the commodities I consume. ‘Consume’ describes the act of eating as well as purchasing a commodity. The still-life table expresses this dual meaning because the objects on display are edible and indicate an individual’s social position through the ability to buy prestigious objects. Artist Dawn Woolley views the still-life table as a portrait of a particular type of consumer. This allows her to view the objects in still-life as an expression of a relation between consumer, commodity, and society. The exhibition encompasses a variety of approaches to the genre to explore the contradictions of capitalism.

IGNITION: FIRST ACTS Ruskin Gallery Thursday 19 - Saturday 28 October Private View: Friday 20 October, 5.00pm In partnership with Cambridge Film Festival 2017 Screen South, the Ignition Network and Anglia Ruskin University, are proud to present a selection of First Acts short films.

Cambridge International Jazz Festival presents CAMBRIDGE SCHOOLS BIG BAND CONCERT Venue: Mumford Theatre, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge Saturday 25 November, 1.00pm As part of the Cambridge International Jazz Festival’s commitment to supporting and promoting jazz in schools, three local school jazz orchestras will be taking the stage to showcase their considerable talents. This fresh and sparky, collaborative event is a chance for young musicians to kick off an exciting day of jazz at the Mumford Theatre, with arrangements of everything from standards to funk and ragtime to swing. Come and support musicians of the future as they make their mark on an evening dedicated to the big band sound.

Beats & Pieces are a band that happens to be big, rather than your average ‘big band’. Led by composer and conductor Ben Cottrell, they’re an extremely tightknit bunch, growing up and developing musically individually and collectively within Manchester’s exciting scene. First playing together as Beats & Pieces in 2008, today these fourteen musicians know each other inside out socially and musically, and this familiarity is part of what sets them aside from a lot of other big bands today. Their music is an expression of the band’s members and their varied musical backgrounds and activities, reflecting the diversity of music that people of their generation have grown up surrounded by. As such, they’re influenced as much by Michael Jackson, Björk or Radiohead as they are by Duke Ellington, Gil Evans or Loose Tubes. Tickets: £18.00 (£15.00 concessions, £12.00 under 18s)

All money raised goes towards sponsoring CJF jazz workshops for young musicians. Tickets: £6.00 (free for under 18s)
