Think about those books, the ones that you’ll always go back to, those moments in life where you think ‘that’s a bit like that chapter’ or ‘you’re just like that character’, those are the stories we love.
We don’t just want to leave those books on the shelf though, we take them down, hand them around, share them out and bring them to life.
All over Oxford we find unusual spaces – these stories aren’t set in theatres so we don’t put them there. Castles, antique mirror tents, college gardens, bookshops and factories… we’ll go wherever the stories take us, and so far we’ve taken over 500,000 people with us.
Our shows are eccentric, unexpected, fun, lively, quirky, fast and definitely not like any version you’ve seen before.
From the thousands of children who’ve told classic stories in new ways through our education programme, to our professional actors and directors, you’re always most likely to find us lost in a good book.
20 years, 58 shows, half a million audience members aged 5-95…we are Oxford’s own Creation Theatre Company.
