A Show for Normal People

Tickets are not on sale for this event yet.

Despite being an award-winning artist, Bafta-winning TV presenter, Reith Lecturer and bestselling author, Grayson Perry is a normal person – and just like other normal people, he’s marginally aware that we’re all going to die.

Born in Essex in 1960, Grayson has had career spanning 40 years. From his A House for Essex, a permanent building constructed in the North Essex countryside in 2015, to Grayson Perry’s Big American Road Trip, a three-part documentary travelogue in which he explores the meaning of the American Dream today, to be broadcast by Channel 4 in 2020, Perry is somewhat an expert in making lemonade out of the mundanity of life.

Let Grayson take you through an enlightening and eye-watering evening in which this kind of existentialism descends from worthiness to silliness. You’ll leave safe and warm in the knowledge that nothing really matters anyway.

Join Grayson as he asks, and possibly answers, these big questions in an evening sure to distract you from the very meaninglessness of life in the way only a man in a dress can.

Tickets left for collection may be collected from Cambridge Live Tickets Box Office (two doors down from the Corn Exchange on Wheeler Street) from one hour before the performance start time. E-Tickets may be displayed on mobile devices. For rescheduled events, original tickets will remain valid.

The Box Office can be contacted by email and will be responding Monday-Friday 10am – 5pm. If you have purchased your tickets through an agent, please contact them with any queries.
