With another day comes another poll. This time the nominated dramas played at Corpus Playroom.

Please vote for your best-but-not-actually-the-best-more-a-subjective-view-of-a-number-of-respondents Corpus Playroom drama. Many congratulations to the following 6 plays that made the cut:

Copenhagen, by Michael Frayn

‘Copenhagen is a fantastic play, without a doubt.’ A reminder here.



The Man, by James Graham

9:30pm, Tue 14th October 2014 – Sat 18th October 2014

Again, where this show lacks a Tab review it makes up for in nominations. It was very well received back in October for its originality and strong performances.

Awarded a confident 2.1, the play was praised for immersing its audience in its world from the get-go.

  • ee

    Attempts on her Life probably best show I’ve seen in Cambridge

    • it was excellent

      but the tab didn’t bother reviewing it so wouldn’t be able to include a nice little link in their description

      • PJ

        would have certainly included it if anyone had sent in a nice little nomination

      • erm?

        Tab ran a preview of the show though so actually it has nothing to do with links or descriptions, rather the lack of nominations. – to avoid this undemocratic injustice ever happening again you’d need to actually nominate… I’m pretty sure that’s how it works.

  • Where’s Proof?

    It’s on the list in the article, but hasn’t showed up in the poll at the bottom

    • Corrected

      In the poll now
