VT2024 – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

In the spring term of 2024, LUST presented one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies: A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

This play brings the audience from Ancient Athens to the fairy-filled forest on its borders. One fateful Midsummer’s Eve, four lovers enter the forest as well as an amateur troupe of actors, all while the Fairy King and Queen are quarrelling. This conflict, aided by the mischievous fairy Puck, leads to comedically chaotic shenanigans and explorations of all different types of love.

HT2023 – Quotidien

In the fall term of 2023, our main production was an original play written by a member of LUST.

Quotidien: a sitcom on the stage; a play about everyday life; a play about nothing. Written by Kadin Tucker.

Life is full of surprises and hills and hurdles, and the six characters followed in this play know it well. They break up, they fall in love. They get fired, they follow their dreams, they get new jobs. That’s just how it goes.

Inspired by classic sitcoms such as Friends, Seinfeld, and How I Met Your Mother, this brings six unique and hopelessly codependent friends to the stage.

VT2023 – Charley’s Aunt

The main production of the spring term 2023 was “Charley’s Aunt” by Brandon Thomas.

Charley’s Aunt is a comedic play first performed in 1892. Oxford undergraduates Charley and Jack need a chaperone so they can entertain socialites Amy and Kitty. When Charley receives word that his aunt, Donna Lucia d’Alvadorez, a rich widow from Brazil, is coming to visit, the boys invite Amy and Kitty to lunch to meet her. But when the aunt’s visit is delayed, they persuade their friend Lord Fancourt to impersonate her so that the lunch can go on.

When the real Donna arrives, hijinks ensue and after many twists, turns, and laughs, the play ends happily with three pairs of young lovers united, along with an older pair!

VT2022 – Doctor Faustus

Our main production in the fall of 2022 was Christopher Marlowe’s Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus.

Originally written sometime around 1590 by Christopher Marlowe, the play centres the titular doctor, who in an obsessive hunt of knowledge turns to the demonic, and a literal deal with the devil, in order to know everything there is to know. With the demon Mephistophilis by his side, and powers beyond those of any mortal, Faustus falls ever deeper into depravity. When is it too late to turn back from evil? And, more importantly, what will it cost if he does not?

HT2023 Pub Theater – Circe’s Treasure

Four pieces of a map, scattered across the world. Four pirate captains, searching for a crew on the isle of Tortuga. Little do they know, soon the hunt for Circe’s treasure will begin. But beware the Prophecy and the kraken, lest you meet a terrible fate!

In the fall of 2022, LUST teamed up with our friends at Kalmar Nation to create an epic, pirate-themed, interactive performance in their pub – with rum, swordplay and grand adventure.
