An artistic explosion of theatre features the best in new writing at Cambridge Junction
Provocative new writing is celebrated with the return of Hotbed, Cambridge’s festival dedicated to showcasing the best in innovative theatre.
This year’s theme “What Country, friends, is this?” focuses on ideas of belonging, identity and a sense of place.
Audiences can sample the results this direct quote from Twelfth Night (Viola’s first words after she’s washed up on a strange shore) have inspired writers to come up with at Cambridge Junction on 8 July.
Produced by Menagerie Theatre Company in association with the Junction, Hotbed has run since 2002, and this year includes new and surprising plays from high-profile writers, including Steve Waters, with work performed in unusual spaces and places throughout the venue.
Menagerie will present a large-scale interactive, improvised audience participation event The Journey, and showcase play readings including five talented writers from the area.
The schedule runs from 10am to 10pm. For full details check the Junction website.
