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.
