The Librarians, trapped in an endless maze of bookcases, without daylight or a single customer in three decades, have all gone quite mad. The ambitious and villainous Hardbach has his sights firmly set on the coveted title of Chief Librarian, and will let nothing stand in his way: certainly not his hatred for books, certainly not rumours of a monster in the library, and certainly not his bumbling peers…

Laughter in the Library
Even during the later stages of the rehearsals, the cast were still finding time to have fun.
During the First Workshop, the cast started developing their characters, prior to filming the trailer.
In order to raise money, we lent a helping hand to the on campus club, providing face painting, and in this case: fortunetelling.
Whose Line is it Anyway?
Another fundraiser was a 'Whose Line is it Anyway?' night. A huge thank you for UEA Comedy Society for taking part!
We've add had an amazing time preparing for the show in Edinburgh, but we couldn't have done it without your generous donations and support!
