Clubs & Societies Directory
Previously known as Madhouse, we are the theatre society and funding body of Murray Edwards College.
We aim to promote the role of women and non-binary people in all areas of theatre - from production, themes within plays, backstage or acting. This is predominantly through
• Funding shows that present similar feminist and LGBT+ themes in line with our ethos
• Supporting Murray Edwards students + female/non-binary casts – whether acting or backstage
• Encouraging these voices to express their stories and experiences
We have previously supported new female writers, majority female production teams and plays with whole female casts.
As well as an annual tradition of performing a May Week Shakespeare show, we also offer new productions to take part in, as well as applications for funding shows that are in line with our ethos.
As well as productions, we hope to encourage women and non-binary students who might not have considered theatre before by offering advice and opportunities to try out different areas from acting, to directing, to backstage technical roles.
