Tea Talks

Returning this Spring Tea Talks

Bringing people together in times of isolation 

In partnership with AgeUK Oxfordshire, Oxford Playhouse is inviting local later-in-life residents to join a member of our team for a cup of tea and a chat over the phone. 

 In a socially-distanced time, we’re reaching out to share and listen to stories and memories in a weekly telephone conversation across a period of six weeks. Building a cross-generational community based on a common desire to come together, our Tea Talks scheme is a great way to make a new friend and find renewed creative interests in a climate that can often feel isolating.

During Autumn 2020, as part of our Tea Talks project, we have worked with ten of our group of participants, to bring together a festive 30-minute Radio Play. The piece features wide-ranging stories, reflections, and contributions from those taking part. To listed please click on the 'Listen to the Radio Play' tab.

Tea Talks was launched in the Summer of 2020 as a befriending phone scheme to encourage storytelling and creativity for ages 60+ in partnership with Age UK. The mean age of our original participants was 82.  As a second phase of the project, 10 of our later-in-life participants shared their stories and memories to to created this moving this radio play, which was recorded remotely.  We hope you enjoy it.
