Hoipolloi theatre group returns to the Cambridge Junction
Award-winning theatre company Hoipolloi return to the Cambridge Junction later this month to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a new trilogy of shows to inspire social justice.
Cambridge-based Hoipolloi produces the writing of artistic director, Shôn Dale-Jones, changing shape and size according to the scale and needs of each project.
Since 2015, Hoipolloi has focussed on making work that aims to inspire social action in audiences, partnering with charities to present shows, offering a new model for theatre and social justice.
The Duke, Me & Robin Hood, and The Ladder, the three plays that make up The Loose Change trilogy, are all about change: personal, social, political.
They’re about how difficult it is to change systems – how difficult is it to change ourselves, individually.
The Loose Change trilogy weaves the personal with the political and inspires social action in audiences, partnering with charities to present shows, offering a new model for theatre and social justice.
To date, more than 220 shows have been performed to over 16,000 people, across three continents, raising £75,000 for children refugees and street-connected children, supporting Save The Children and Street Child United.
For almost a decade, Hoipolloi collaborated with the Welsh emerging artist Hugh Hughes on the creation of a number of highly successful award-winning shows.
They are delighted to be welcoming him back for the Junction shows.
The Ladder, along with Me & Robin Hood and The Duke are being performed at the Cambridge Junction and at the Salisbury Club, respectively, as part of the company’s celebrations on Tuesday, October 15, Wednesday, October 16 and Friday, October 18.
Performances start from 7.30pm and tickets are available by calling the box office on 01223 511511, or booking online at junction.co.uk.
