The Rise and Fall of a Northern Star

Sex, drugs and rock & roll – Tracy Star wanted it all!

Born into the depressing landscape of 1980's northern Britain, Tracy sought to escape the mediocrity of her life and make something of herself in the burgeoning music scene – with Bowie as her guiding light.

Ovid’s Heroines

Meet the brave, bitchy, sexy, horrifying, heartbreaking and surprisingly modern women of ancient Greece.

Clare Pollard brings these heroines to life in a stunning new staging of her own free verse translation. With astonishing lyricism, she tears iconic female figures like Medea, Penelope and Ariadne from the pages of Ovid's Heroides and introduces them to the 21st century.

Clare rebuilds Ovid's classic letters from the ground up to bridge the gap between the ancient world and modern Britain, and shows that their messages of longing, suffering and beauty are both timeless and moving.

Age guideline : 12+

Twelfth Night

Mad hair, immense jewellery, outrageous costumes… And that’s just Orsino, who is trying his damnedest to get with stubborn Olivia. Feste cannot be serious and Maria… well, she just wants revenge. So when Viola and Sebastian pitch up on the shores of the gypsy island of Illyria they have to adapt fast if they are going to find each other.

A gypsy folk band accompanies the exploits of the shipwrecked twins as they seek to find each other amongst the madcap and colourful characters that inhabit the world of Illyria.

This year we were also delighted to be performing at Art in Action at Waterperry Gardens and the Wilderness Festival at Cornbury Park.

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.

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.
