To OPT in! all you need to do is buy a membership card for just £1 from the Oxford Playhouse Ticket Office. ***Please bring a passport sized photo and a valid ID which states your birthdate, between 10am - 6pm, Mon - Sat***

Once you've joined, we'll send you an email at the start of every month to let you know about all the free and discounted tickets for the month ahead. You can book yourself plus one non OPT in! member in to a show (but they do need to be under 26 too), just remember to bring your OPT in! card along when you collect your ticket.

There's a limited number available for each show, so book yourself in early to make sure you get your tickets.

The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner

This haunting tale of friendship spans cultures and continents and follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption. Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international bestselling novel and film, this powerful and dramatic story leaves a lasting impression on anyone it touches.

She Stoops to Conquer

She Stoops to Conquer

It’s the 18th century. Kate Hardcastle is a young lady fixed up to meet the eligible Marlow with a view to marriage. Marlow is a young gent who is tongue-tied with the upper classes and downright lecherous with commoners. So when Marlow mistakes Kate for a lowly barmaid, what could possibly go wrong?

In Time O' Strife

In Time O' Strife

On the 30th anniversary of the 1984 miners’ strike, the National Theatre of Scotland presents a powerful reimagining of Joe Corrie’s 1926 classic play about a Fife mining community buckling under the strain of a long-running lockout.

A heartbreaking examination of class conflict and the price of industrial success.

Secret Theatre: Show 2

Secret Theatre: Show 2

Secret Theatre is coming to Oxford…

Show 2 is taking place on Oxford Playhouse’s main stage. The flagship production of the Secret Theatre season this is the show that really got people talking. If you like bold, clever and thought-provoking productions this one is for you. It received 4 star reviews and was described as “vivid and vital” and “crystalline and heart-breaking” by the critics.

Secret Theatre: Show 4

Secret Theatre: Show 4

Secret Theatre is coming to Oxford…

Show 4 is taking place on Oxford Playhouse’s main stage. With a nod to Jacobean tragedy it’s been described as “thrilling” and “a thick slice of thick pulp fiction”. A voyeuristic look at power-struggles and notions of fame, this show is for audiences who like thoughtful provocations. If you saw and enjoyed 1984 – book for this!

Secret Theatre: Show 6

Secret Theatre: Show 6

Show 6 is taking place at the Burton Taylor Studio. If you’re a regular to the BT professional seasons, this one is for you. If you’ve never been before but like your theatre on the edgy side, why not give it a try? Written by a well-known and often controversial playwright, it’s sure to entertain. Capacity is limited, so early booking is recommended.
