By the pricking of my thumbs
Something wicked this way comes

MACBETH: one of the most frightening and gripping plays ever written. A nightmarish world of bloodshed, war and political violence.

in situ:’s vocally and visually compelling new production of Shakespeare’s bloody masterpiece opens on a devastated landscape. A crazed woman is dancing amongst the rubble – the spectacle cases, the photographs, the hair, the ashes, the teeth. Out of this debris of people’s lives and deaths, a performance begins to emerge.

The War of the Worlds

Thursday 17 – Sunday 20 July 2003
Venue: The Methodist Church Hall, Sturton Street, Cambridge
Time: 8pm

Britain in the late nineteenth century. The most powerful nation on Earth finds itself under attack from a technologically vastly superior and more intelligent adversary: the Martians. Within days all resistance has been crushed, the infrastructure is destroyed and the few remaining humans are reduced to the status of hunted animals.

A terrifying vision of the technological future and one of the greatest works of science fiction ever written. This outstanding new adaptation has all the hallmarks of in situ:’s remarkable performances – high quality ensemble, daring vocal work, a unique blend of the improvised and the scripted and a spine-tingling atmosphere of terror and suspense.

A new DVD of the performance is available to order, please call for details.

War and Peace

Monday 14 July 2003
Location: The Cambridge Drama Centre
Time: 8:30pm

War & Peace has arisen out of a theatre course exploring Voice, Movement and Text. It is a work-in-progress rather than a fully-blown performance, the idea being to give the performers, some of whom have never been on stage before, the opportunity to perform in relatively relaxed circumstances.

Each performer has chosen a text on the theme of War and Peace. The performance is a ‘cabaret’ of these different texts.

Paradise

Friday 28 March – Saturday 29 March, 2003
Location: The Cambridge Drama Centre
Time: 8:00pm

in situ:’s new performance explores the events of September 11, 2001, focussing on two astonishing documents – separated by more than seven hundred years of bloody history.

1299. Marco Polo tells of The Old Man of the Mountain and his fanatical followers: The Assassins. They kill anyone he commands, and die in the attempt. Why? Because they believe he has the power to send them to Paradise.

September, 2001. In one of the hijacker’s cars, police find a set of instructions, promising them death… and Paradise.

Paradise is a passionate, thought-provoking and disturbing new work, which asks: if humans beings long for Paradise, why do they create Hell?
