REDS | Revived Emmanuel Dramatic Society

The Revived Emmanuel Dramatic Society is the resident theatre company of Emmanuel College. In recent years we have played an increasingly prominent role in Cambridge drama and funding and hosting several shows across the city each year. From small-scale freshers' plays in Emmanuel's own Queen's Building to the ADC and Corpus Playroom mainshows, REDS is dedicated to supporting a wide range of quality productions. May Week sees REDS perform in the magical surroundings of the College's Oriental Plane Tree.

REDS aims to encourage students to take part in Drama in all areas from acting to backstage and producing and directing. By striking a balance between commercial success and an emphasis on creativity and originality, REDS continues to ensure that it is one of Cambridge's most consistently profitable and artistically rewarding drama societies.

The Freshers' Play

Each year in Michaelmas term, REDS puts on its own Freshers' Play - a play directed, produced, teched, designed and acted entirely by Emmanuel freshers. It's the perfect way to get involved with Cambridge drama and to meet loads of new people. Recent REDS Freshers' Plays have been Lady Windermere's Fan and Servant of Two Masters.
