The Keele Drama Society is proud to be one of the oldest societies at Keele. We have been performing shows since the early 1950s and are still going strong. This history gives our current members the platform to be creative, learn theatre and have fun! We have performed over 100 plays, from modern classics to student written wonders and of course, let's not forget our annual Summer Shakespeare.

Below is the list of known plays that we have done for the past 50 years! Take a look and let us know at soc.drama@keele.ac.uk if we have missed anything.

The current list is being updated, if you'd like to see all the names we have please click here
