Black Coffee

By Agatha Christie

All is calm on a quintessentially English country estate, until murder shatters the peace and throws the house guests into chaos: eccentric physicist Sir Claud Amory is found dead and his new scientific formula has been stolen. Arriving at the estate just moments after the discovery, one man immediately senses treachery and deception and sets about deducing which one of Amory’s guests betrayed him. Hercule Poirot is on the case.

The Agatha Christie Theatre Company makes a welcome return to Oxford Playhouse with this classic Poirot thriller starring Jason Durr as the famous Belgian sleuth. Best known from ITV’s hit series Heartbeat Jason has also appeared in in Lewis, Midsomer Murders, and Miss Marple and was last seen at Oxford Playhouse in Noel Coward’s Volcano. Jason will be joined by Gary Mavers, Ben Nealon, Deborah Grant, Oliver Mellor, who for 4 years has played Dr. Matt Carter in Coronation Street, and Georgina Leonidas who played Katie Bell in the last two Harry Potter movies.

Black Coffee, the first play ever written by Agatha Christie. introduces a character who went on to become the most famous detective of all time and the only fictional character ever to receive a full-page obituary in the New York Times.

Macbeth

reation’s next outdoor summer Shakespeare will be a production of Macbeth in the grounds Lady Margaret Hall’s gardens.

Recommended for age 8+

Performances: August – September 2014

Macbeth

Shakespeare’s darkest play

A political thriller and a horror story. Fast paced, unrelenting, absorbing, repugnant.

This never was safe theatre and in Creation’s hands it becomes a rollercoaster of dreams and visions, re-imagined within the confines of a sanatorium within earshot of the guns of the Western Front.

Gathered for a strange wake and seated at tables before the edifice of Lady Margaret Hall, the audience is drawn into a disconcerting world that drifts among them like whispering eddies of dreaded gas.

22th Aug - 23th Aug

7:30 pm /  7:30 pm

South Pacific

RicNic Oxford returns to Pegasus with the Tony Award-winning classic, South Pacific, perhaps the defining musical from Rodgers and Hammerstein (The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, and Carousel).

Set on a gorgeous tropical island during the Second World War, South Pacific tells the tale of two parallel love stories threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war, and features such classic numbers as Some Enchanted Evening and I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy.

Following sell-out performances of West Side Story and Guys ‘n’ Dolls, this talented company of local young people promises another show filled with memorable songs, larger-than-life characters, and guaranteed fun for the whole family.

“Explodes with talent ……it has wowed sold-out audiences…. they are professionals to their very core” Oxford Mail on RicNic Oxford, West Side Story 2012.
