An unmissable cultural highlight of Oxford’s summer, Oxford Playhouse and the Bodleian Library welcome back the Globe on Tour with not one, not two, but three shows! Experience theatre as it was performed in Shakespeare’s day, with this unique theatrical event set in the Old Schools Quadrangle, one of the UK’s most glorious locations.

In the Elizabethan era, when the theatres closed, a small group of actors, juggling a variety of roles from their extensive repertoire, would leave London and head off on tour. The choice of play performed was left to the most powerful person in the household. So, in a first for Shakespeare’s Globe, eight actors will offer you, the audience, the chance to choose which of three plays you’d like them to perform  moments before the performance is set to begin. Follow in the tradition of a Shakespearean audience and get involved, raise your hands and shout out loud to cast your vote for your favourite play: The Merchant of VeniceThe Taming of the Shrew or Twelfth Night.

  • Nice Guy

    Tue 23 - Sat 27 Oct

    What do men mean when they describe themselves as ‘nice guys’? Written by Oxford students, Nice Guy tells a story of love and abuse. Told through a series of musical letters, this show explores the gulf between the happy picture of events we present to the world, and the grim reality behind it. The production has been shaped by conversations with Clean Slate, an Oxfordshire charity spe...

    Tue 30 Oct - Sat 3 Nov

    ‘What do you do if you're gay, sir?’  ‘You talk to someone.’  ‘I'm trying to talk to you.’  Tom is bisexual – maybe. Or then again, maybe he isn’t. To be honest, he hasn’t got much experience to help him figure it all out. But with some questionable advice from his friends, that’s about to change.  Mark Ravenhill’s (Shopping and F**king) witty and bittersweet script sidesteps our expec...

  • Shakespeare In Love

    Tue 30 Oct - Sat 3 Nov

    Winning no less than seven Oscars, the film of Shakespeare in Love, starring Judi Dench, Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow, became an instant classic. Adapted by Lee Hall for a triumphant West End run, this epic Elizabethan extravaganza is exuberant, witty, funny, and a beautiful homage to love, art, and theatre itself. Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block... the deadline for his...
