Hidden Spire 2015: Before The Tempest   theatre In Oxford
Thursday 17th & Friday 18th September: Before the Tempest imagines what life was like on the island for Miranda and Prospero as a prequel to Shakespeare’s classic tale of love, magic and bad weather.

The play is the result of this year’s Hidden Spire which brings together a team of professional artists to make a show from scratch alongside people who are homeless. It’s a collaboration and we’ve been writing, devising, designing and building over 14 months to create what promises to be an extraordinary moment of live theatre with a striking set – a work of art in itself.

It’s about isolation and belonging, despair and forgiveness. It’s about wanting to fit in and being different. It’s about growing up. And it’s about birds
Tickets” £12, conc £10. Time: 2pm & 7pm.
Blue Stockings   theatre In Oxford
Tuesday 22nd - Saturday 26th September: Victorian Cambridge: at the first women’s college, a group of brilliant young women are fighting for the right to an equal education, and for the chance to determine their own futures.

Although women are allowed to attend the same lectures and sit the same exams as men, they are denied the right to graduate. And the price for even this small taste of freedom is high. Traditional bastions in academia resent them, while in the outside world they are viewed as “blue-stockings”: undesirable, unnatural women, unfit for marriage. But over the course of one turbulent year, a group of extraordinary men and women will fight to change the face of education forever .
Tickets: £15, £12. Time: 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Waiting For Godot   Theatre Oxford
Thursday 17 September: Vladimir and Estragon meet as dusk approaches. Estragon tries to remove his boot. Vladimir examines his hat. A conversation begins, a joke is interrupted. A carrot is eaten. The two men quarrel then embrace. Unannounced, two eccentric travellers arrive. Seemingly master and servant, one stands weighed down at the end of a long rope, the other carries a whip.

So begins Samuel Beckett’s 60 year old masterpiece, a ground-breaking, anarchic meditation on the meaning of life and death. Part allegory, part burlesque, Samuel Beckett’s unique, timeless play moves seamlessly between absurdist comic sketch and captivating philosophical drama .
Tickets: £15, £13.50 (concs), £10 under 16s and schools (staff and students). Time: 7.30pm.
