What is Spex?

Simply put Spex is a form of amateur theatre which can be explained as a comical musical with many bad puns where interactivity is key. Audience participation occurs continuously throughout the performance through commands like: ‘restart’, ‘in German’, ‘switch roles’, ‘kiss them’, etcetera. Spex has its origins in the 1850’s in Uppsala in response to the Greek and Latin dramas they studied. If you want to find out more about Spex a great tip is to try to attend one. Many of the different chapter Spex performances are in Spring after the exams. Otherwise you can read more about in on Wikipedia.
