At Oxford Playhouse we believe that everyone, whatever their background or circumstance, should have the chance to experience live performance.
Watching theatre can transport us to far away places. It lets us time travel and journey alongside characters with similar and dissimilar experiences to our own - it helps us to empathise, to celebrate, to laugh and to cry. We might be a bit biased, but we think theatre and live performance is pretty good for the soul!
That's why every year we give away around 2,500 tickets absolutely free to community groups, individuals or school groups that might otherwise not be able to attend.
We call this programme Open House.
