Easter 2020: Radio Play and Sketch show
We’re very excited to announce the Cambridge University Light Entertainment Society’s (remote) Easter term productions: “In The Nick Of Time” – a comedy radioplay by Grace Beckett and Henry Weighill, and “Nothing To See Here” – a sketch show featuring sketches by Gregory Miller, Anna Trowby and Ido Rosen.
After a very brief hiatus, CULES is making a grand (albeit rather poorly timed) return. Though we are in uncertain and unprecedented times, CULES will always strive to bring a smile to your face and provide fun, silly comedy theatre where it is most needed. This Easter term, we will be raising money for The Trussell Trust, a charity battling hunger and poverty throughout the UK. Though our radio shows will be totally free to access, we invite you to donate whatever you can to our fundraiser. Anything is appreciated!
In The Nick Of Time
7pm, 8 June on Cam FM
What happens when four World War II Bletchley Park codebreakers are accidentally transported into the 21st century? Bravery, valiance and indefatigable courage abounds? Not likely! Follow this hapless foursome as they navigate the perils of the modern world, encountering everything from malicious train conductors to aged professors on a whirlwind adventure through the Home Counties! But with Britain’s entire war effort at stake, will they make it back before it’s too late?
Nothing To See Here: THE Sketch Show
7pm, 2 June on Cam FM
Have you ever fancied listening to a sketch show? If so, now’s your time. Yes, you can listen to a sketch show which follows every twitch and flutter of the brain, moving from Vacuum cleaners to bananas, haunted hotels to suspect sandwich makers, from a strange dating app to an even stranger fashion editor. But you’ll never see any of it. Then again, you don’t need to. The sound waves will paint vivid pictures in your mind, pictures so vivid that you won’t be able to get them out of your mind. Even when you dream, you’ll dream of sandwiches, bananas and all other forms of witty shenanigans. Now, do we know for certain that this will happen? No. Is it based on any evidence at all? No. But here’s one thing that can be promised. This show will be wacky, and it will feature all the above things mentioned. Make of that what you will.
