‘There Is Nothing Bawdy About BAWDS!’

Wednesday 24th March 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm


This illustrated talk will describe the activity of “Bawds” one of Cambridge’s leading amateur dramatic groups – its history, productions and future plans.

Book now.


The Women in White (2010)

Members of the group will describe how a director chooses a play and creates a team of actors and crew who can help to realise his or her vision for the production. They will describe what goes on backstage in terms of set, props, costume makeup etc to create the magic of theatre. The talk will be illustrated with slides, video extracts and readings by members of Bawds, from a variety of past productions.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions of the group and find out more about additional activities such as podcasts, online productions, drama festivals and how to stay in touch or get involved!   Questions or comments should be submitted as follows:-

  • participants joining via ‘Zoom’ may submit their questions (at any time during the presentation) by typing them into the ‘Zoom Chat’ window, and
  • those joining via telephone, by e-mail to:- library@gmail.com

Notes on the Organisation:

“Bawds is one of the leading amateur drama companies in Cambridge.  In normal times it performs 3 main shows a year mostly, but not exclusively, at the ADC Theatre, attracting actors and backstage artists from all round the county.  Bawds also works with The Penguin Club, a group of volunteers in and around Cambridge who enjoy making the technical side of theatre come together.”
