Greek Medicine, The Cambridge Junction
The Young Actors Company’s devised group return to the Junction for a new piece about trying to connect in this weird city. Expect a story which definitely makes sense, characters you can always recognise, songs you can learn and a Chorus who know exactly what they’re doing. Hopefully.
“So the shows were like a way for the community to come to terms with what everyone had been through. Or were about to go through. In the real world? …I guess that is probably too neat.”
