About this group

UCLU Drama Society has a simple aim: to produce excellent and innovative student theatre. We are dedicated to facilitating the ideas of our members, encouraging them to take a play and fulfil their vision for it. In past years this has led to vivid re-imaginings of various pieces from Simon Stephens to Euripides.

Each year UCLU Drama Society puts on as many as 20 productions, meaning that you’ll rarely find a time that a play is neither in production or performance. On campus, we boast two excellent venues in the UCLU Garage Theatre Workshop and the Bloomsbury Theatre (the latter of which is a listed West End theatre) but also regularly stamp our mark on performance spaces across the capital. Many of these productions have been popular and critical successes, with the society garnering particular praise for our annual run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival through our touring company, ‘UCLU Runaground’ (Fringe Sell-Out Award Winners 2010 & 2012).

2012/13 was a year of enormous success for the Drama Society, filled with numerous events including; Freshers Plays, Radio Plays, the 24 hour plays, the Quad play, the external ‘Rag Factory’ performance, national tours, the creation of the London Student Drama Festival and, due to the success of our numerous productions in the Garage Theatre Workshop and especially our two Bloomsbury shows, 'The Good Soul of Szechuan' and 'Gut Girls', we were able to send 3 fantastic productions to this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. These productions were labelled “a masterclass of acting”* and upheld as “nothing short of perfect”**.

We provide a number of opportunities within each production, so whether you want to act, direct, produce, set design, costume design or write we are here to facilitate your ideas and make them a reality.

Above all, whether you’re a seasoned actor looking to pursue a career in the theatre, or if you’ve never been on the stage in your life – joining the Drama Society is a fantastic way to make new friends and enjoy all the wonderful theatrical opportunities UCL has to offer.
