Three evenings of new drama, performed by Oxford Playhouse 12|16 and 17|25 Young Companies, all inspired by the concept of ‘freedom’.

We fight for basic human rights and individual luxuries but in truth we take our freedoms for granted. You think you know what spurs you on but are surprised each time the past creeps or jumps up to remind you why you do what you do and who you are. If the past is inescapable how do you face it or do you hide in someone or something else?

OP Young Playmakers have written short plays exploring the concept of freedom and how we encounter individual and universal freedoms throughout our lives.

Yet this is not a story of women united in rebellion, but of the internal struggles faced by the working class within the suffrage movement. For servant Bathsheba, suffrage...

  • Sister Act - The Musical

    Thu 24 - Sat 26 Jan

    When aspiring singer Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder by her boyfriend, she is taken into a Witness Protection Programme and hidden in the least-likely place she’d ever be found - a convent! Whilst there, Deloris breathes new life into the nuns’ choir turning them into gospel superstars and learns there’s more to life than fame and fortune. Based on the 1992 mega-hit film starring...

  • The Ethics of Enron

    Fri 25 Jan

    The 2001 collapse of the Enron Corporation shook Wall Street to its core.

But in 2001 it all went wrong. Collapsing in dizzying fashion, Enron’s stock price plumm...
