Oxford Playhouse has entertained and inspired the people of Oxford and the wider region since opening in 1938.

Once known as the University Theatre, Oxford Playhouse is now an independent charitable trust dedicated to presenting and producing the best drama, comedy, dance and music available to make us a Playhouse for Everyone.
