Two blokes in an office. One older, one younger, each body pushed to its limits. A cross between The Office and an Australian style cage-fight, this game of comical one-upmanship builds to a moment of impact where everything is suspended.

Straight from Australia’s Gold Coast, Cockfight explores the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions culture’s desperate desire for achievement. Skilfully enacting a full-throttle mash-up of extreme physical risk-taking, graceful movement and slow-mo fight sequences, this is a darkly humorous and surprisingly tender piece of dance theatre by The Farm.

  • Things I Know to be True

    Wed 27 - Sat 30 Sep

    Following a hugely successful 2016 tour, Things I Know To Be True returns to Oxford Playhouse this autumn. As beautifully touching as it is funny and bold, it tells the story of a family through the eyes of four grown siblings struggling to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and expectations. Parents Bob and Fran have worked their fingers to the bone and, with their four chil...
