ITDS Calendar

Please note that ITDS’s calendar may be a little different this year due to restrictions. Please follow one of our social media sites to keep up to date with what the society is doing and how you can be involved. On a usual year, the ITDS calendar is:


Fortnightly during term time


Our evening improvisation classes are a great way to have fun with members of ITDS. Join us for an evening of improvisation games.

At The Inner Temple

Christmas Show/Pantomime

Beginning of December


Each year, ITDS puts on a production before the Christmas holidays (oh yes it does!). From Little Red Riding Hood to Mother Goose, the ITDS pantomime is always a fun event in the calendar. Bringing together actors, singers, dancers, musicians, a production team, backstage crew and even Inner Temple Benchers, the pantomime is a great way to get started with ITDS. This year, we are hoping to put together something a little different so watch this space!

At The Bridewell Theatre


In July


A Shakespeare Battle! Want to help to prove that Inner Temple has the best drama society? Join us for a battle against Middle Temple with only one weapon…. Shakespeare! In one evening, we face Middle Temple with a condensed Shakespeare production.

In the Inner Temple Gardens

Edinburgh Fringe Show

In August


For the first time this year, we secured funding from the Inn to take a piece of new writing to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of the Festival, we were unable to take our show this summer. However, we have secured the theatre for next year and look forward to our 2021 show!

In Edinburgh, Scotland

History Society Show

In July


ITDS are sometimes asked to put on a production for the History Society. ITDS perform excerpts from a historical play interspersed with commentary by academics.

At The Temple Church

ITDS also do a variety of one-off shows, including readings of plays and improvisation shows where the opportunities arise!
