Peterhouse Scholar’s Garden

The team behind One By One (“Congratulations…whoever you may be” **** – Tab, “Put this on again” 9/10 – TCS) and Grey Matters (“Uplifting, eye opening” **** – Tab; “a superb dramatic experience” ***** – Varsity) return with a brand new immersive show on an unprecedented scale in Cambridge.
Saturnalia is a garden party like no other. Hosted by the notorious all-female drinking society, the Saturnians, its reputation grows year on year with each fresh controversy that surrounds it. This year, you have the opportunity to join them for an afternoon of hedonistic excess. The Saturnians have thrown off the shackles of propriety a long time ago, and they hope that you will join them. Only the most dedicated disciples of debauchery can hope to earn a seat at their table – do you have what it takes?
Food and drink not provided. Please bring your own offerings to the feast.
Dress code: smart casual.
Contains strong language, partial nudity, and scenes of a sexual nature. Not suitable for under 16s.
This in an immersive performance which requires audience movement and interaction, with limited seating.
