Perhaps you’ve seen them floating over a Russian village? Or perhaps you’ve seen her toppling forward, arms full of wild flowers, as he arches above her head and steals a kiss.

Partners in life and on canvas, Marc and Bella Chagall are immortalised as the picture of romance. But whilst on canvas they flew, in life they walked through some of the most devastating times in history, navigating the Pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and each other.

Daniel Jamieson’s The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk comes to Oxford after selling out at London’s Globe Theatre and the Traverse in Edinburgh, where it won the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award. Emma Rice’s production is drawn in a theatrical language as fluid as Chagall’s celebrated paintings, and woven throughout with music and dance inspired by Russian Jewish tradition.

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval

Over the river in Chelsea, their father and greatest actor of his generation Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is their re...

    “…you know, there’s nothing like someone cutting your dad in two for clearing the mind.”   A slick and brutal black comedy from Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem). In the criminal underworld of 1950’s London, violent gang warfare erupts in the rock’n’roll club scene as rivals compete – and kill – for control of the lucrative new teen sensation ‘Silver Johnny’.

    It’s a simple thing that Princess Salomé wants – a kiss from the mouth of John the Baptist.  There are no lengths she won’t go to in order to get what she wants. And now, if she can bend her lecherous stepfather King Herod to her will, she has her opportunity – but at what terrible cost?   Literary legend Oscar Wilde turns this biblical tale to a fierce drama of lust, seduction and reve...
