COMING UP IN AUGUST

Bring on the Bollywood
Tue 15 August, 7.30pm
Main Stage
Free & £5 OPT in tickets available

Full of dazzling costumes, dizzying dance numbers and a backdrop of glittery Himalayan peaks, Bring on the Bollywood promises lots of romance and, for Katrina (who’s been summoned home to India by her meddling, matchmaker mother), big trouble. 

BOOK NOW


COMING UP IN SEPTEMBER

Flown
Thu 14 September, 7.30pm
Main stage
Free & £5 OPT in tickets available

Irreverent and silly, bold and breath-taking, Flown tells the tale of a motley crew of incredible acrobats, aerialists, musicians and stuntmen trying to get their circus show on the road.

Mixing comedy and chaos with bold physicality and live music; come inside, look backstage and delight in the absurdity of contemporary circus life. Things go right, plenty more goes wrong and catastrophe is just one move away.

BOOK NOW


Things I Know to be True
Fri 29 September, 8.00pm
Main stage
Free & £5 OPT in tickets available

Unfolding over the space of a year, Things I Know To Be True is a beautiful and painfully perceptive portrait of a family and the frictions that arise when grown-up children try to push beyond the confines of their loving parents’ expectations.

As touchingly as it is funny and bold, this poetic and intense study of the mechanics of a family is “genuinely haunting and fervently recommended” (Independent).

BOOK NOW

 


What do I get?

As an OPT in member you are entitled to a pair of free tickets for one show a month (the pair of free tickets cannot be split between two shows).

You can also have a pair of tickets for all Oxford Playhouse shows with £5 and £10 OPT inticket offers.

You are very welcome to bring a friend. If they are not an OPT in member already they should also be between 14 and 26.

 

How do I book?

What happens if I can't make it?
