Whether you’re interested in writing sketches or full length plays, Cambridge is unrivalled in the opportunities it presents you. The drama community offers many ways to help you take your first steps through rehearsed readings, script workshops and one-off performances: look out for these advertised in the student press, websites and on email lists.
If you write a full length script and want to get it staged, you’ll generally need to find a director
(unless you want to direct
your own work) before applying to a society. If you want to fund your project, you’ll find it one step easier to get your play on the stage somewhere, but getting one of the societies to finance it removes the worry of your work being a commercial flop. Even if a drama group does the producing for you, you’ll need to explain to them why people will want to see the play, as they have to feel the venture will be financially viable.
