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.

A bashful exploration of misfits, identity and family told through the whimsical comedy of knitting, pen...

  • Three Sisters

    Tue 29 Oct - Sat 2 Nov

    Three Sisters is a play of thwarted potential. The sisters are elemental, glorious, bird-like creations who are ground down by their exile from Moscow. In the country, they grow old and dream of their hometown. Chekhov is an ever popular cornerstone of the canon. A contemporary of his attributed this popularity to Chekhov’s ‘rejection of what we may call the heroic values’. The young wom...
