We Evolved from Chimps

New Adelphi Studio

The University of Slough needs your help!

The power is in your hands to help the Chancellor appoint the new Vice-Chancellor.

With the University drowning in debt and awful reviews, three professors battle it out to win the promotion of a lifetime. They each must present a lecture beyond their expertise, challenging their pea-sized noggins, to impress the Chancellor, but most importantly, to impress you.

Exploring topics that question morality, humanity, and the University’s sanity, you’ll be left questioning whether these "professionals" should be sharing their knowledge (or lack of) and teaching the next generation.

Starring Ben Jukes, Rhys Harris-Clarke, Rheanon Lee Shaw

Admission: Pay What You Can

Pay What You Can is an ‘honesty box’ for the theatre. We and the artists will continue to programme and produce high quality events and ask you to pay what you can afford.

As a guide, for those in full time employment we would appreciate you donating between £5 and £10. We also understand people's income can be precarious, hence the lower price options. All revenue from ticket sales for events at New Adelphi Theatre will always go back to support professional artists, through residencies, commissions, touring work or for more bespoke projects where the student experience is enhanced through co-creation with arts professionals. We thank you for all your continued support.

Please note all bookings and donations come with a 50p booking fee.

For students on Performance courses, please check Blackboard for information about ticket discounts.

Please note: checking the Wheelchair User option will also reserve a free seat for an essential companion.

If you require limited mobility access (step-free), please let a member of staff know upon arrival.

Accessibility is extremely important to us at the New Adelphi Theatre. If you have any accessibility requirements, please email Hannah at the box office at

When you arrive, the Box Office only needs to take the ticketholder’s name to check you in, however we can also scan any printed ticket or e-ticket you may present.

All tickets are non-allocated seating.
