The Two Gentlemen of Verona

One of Oxford’s most spectacular summer highlights, Oxford Playhouse and the Bodleian Library are delighted to welcome back Globe Theatre On Tour. Get your summer soaring by seeing one of Shakespeare’s most charming comedies in the unique outdoor setting of the Old Schools Quadrangle.

Valentine loves Silvia and Proteus loves Julia – but Proteus is fickle, and falls for Silvia too. Join a joyful ensemble of players as they bounce between elopements, betrayals and forest-dwelling outlaws - plus a bit with a dog. Along the way, they play out Shakespeare’s immortal themes of deceit, love and friendship.

This riotous new production will delight with songs, romance and chaos, hurling Shakespeare’s anarchic comedy into the 21st century. The perfect play for summer!

Nel

Meet Nel: a foley artist. Don't know what that is? Don't worry, not many do. Nel brings films to life through sound. In her world, screeching tyres are made from hot water bottles and epic fight scenes are a symphony of snapping celery and frozen cabbages. Nel is good at this stuff - it's the rest of her life that's a disaster. Her cat has died and she’s accidentally poisoned her fish.

She needs help and maybe a change of shoes.

Using a beautifully crafted mix of live music, onstage foley artistry and physical theatre, Scratchworks latest production presents Nel's touching story about identity, friendship and what it means to be an introvert.

Nel will knock your socks off.

Break Yourself

“The thing I like about Springsteen is that all his songs are about blue-collar, American, working class, men. You know, men who work on the railroads, and in lumberyards. Real men. I’m not really that kind of guy.”

Meet Ollie. He’s a graphic designer. But he wants to be Bruce.

Break Yourself is about the performance of identity and of gender. It is about the relationship between power and desire, the complex landscape of male and female sexual desire, and the desire to be something ‘other’. And it’s about Bruce Springsteen.

A risky, dishonest, head-first, whole-hearted, and perhaps slightly desperate attempt to try and be something we have never been before.

King John

Returning to the BT Studio, MCS Drama presents a new adaptation of King John. This rarely performed gem is one of Shakespeare’s most politically powerful and gravely comic plays.

Considered to be Shakespeare’s ‘most unhistorical’ history play, this radical interpretation will examine the themes of legitimate rule, rebellion and right-and wrong in a modern day setting. Marking the 800th anniversary of King John’s death, and the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this production will “look into the blots and stains of right” in a fast-paced, riotous take on the original text.

Wild!

Tutti Frutti

A story of a boy
Running, jumping, no time for sleeping
A boy with big ideas
Shouting, sprinting, can’t be stopping
A boy who is lonely
Imagining, dreaming, better than schooling
A boy who loves the open air
Leaving, escaping, no space for listening
A boy they call WiLd!

Award winning writer Evan Placey has teamed up with tutti frutti and CANDAL at Nottingham University to create a fantastic new play with one actor and one live musician that unravels the story of a wayward, fragile and misunderstood boy who lives on his wits and untamed imagination.

A brilliant, clever, brave new play celebrating all things ‘wild’ with fabulous live music and fresh moves.

For every misunderstood child, their teachers and families up and down the land.

Running Time 55 minutes

Ages 8 plus

Funded by the Wellcome Trust this remarkable new play is informed by intensive research into the condition of ADHD in children.

Love’s Labour’s Lost

Directed by Nicholas Green

A Lover’s eyes will gaze an eagle blind,
A lover’s ear will hear the lowest sound
And when Love speaks, the voice of all the gods
Make heaven drowsy with the harmony.
(Act4.Sc3 Line 308 to 319)

Free love and anarchy?

Not so for the King of Navarre and his boys who have all sworn an oath to scholarship, fasting and absolutely no women.

What are the odds then, of a wandering Princess and her three friends pitching up in the same forest?!

Watch the madcap antics of four (once) solemn young men and their cohorts, as they fall over themselves and their words, to find out whether four weary young women love them.

Or love them not…

Our Love’s Labour’s Lost is let loose in the 1970’s with original music, inspired by the decade that bought us, Glam Rock, Punk and New Wave, from Nick Lloyd Webber.

Welcome to the Oxford Shakespeare Company, acclaimed specialists in open-air and site specific theatre.

Widely recognised for the inventiveness and panache of our shows, the OSC takes equal pride in the quality of its original music. This summer we are delighted to welcome back Nicholas Green, director of the exceptionally received Private Lives in 2010 and last year’s hugely successful Twelfth Night.

The OSC are celebrated for their open air, site specific performances both at their summer residency at Wadham College Oxford and across the Historic Royal Palaces sites of Hampton Court, Kensington Palace, Tower of London and the Banqueting House Whitehall.

This year we were delighted to be returning for our third year at Wilderness

Our shows are designed to be interactive with the environment in which they are performed, allowing the audience to enter fully into the world of the play. They are renowned for their talented actors, sensational costumes and for the quality of the live music which is individually devised for each production.

Fatzer: Downfall of an Egoist

International Brecht Society Symposium 2016

The North Wall hosts the premiere of an English translation of Brecht’s dramatic fragment: Fatzer: Downfall of an Egoist. The work, in a new version by Tom Kuhn, follows four deserters from the First World War, who make their way back behind friendly lines, where they eke out a life underground, daring only to make occasional forays out in search of food.

The social and psychological tensions played out within the group, and the contrary pulls between collaborative action and extreme egotism, give unexpected hints of Beckett or Sartre, rather than the more traditional Brecht.
