King Lear   theatre In Oxford

12 February – 19 March 2016: A story of power, madness and betrayal. Set amongst towering book stacks, our cast of just five actors will present Lear’s spiralling descent in this fast-paced and inventive reworking of one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies. In just two and a half hours, this radical retelling will follow the ageing King and his three daughters in a tale of ignorance and deceit as he struggles to divide his kingdom amongst them.

A new adaptation from Director Charlotte Conquest and brought to you by the team behind our 2011 sell-out Doctor Faustus, we’ll transform the iconic Norrington Room deep below the busy Oxford streets into a 186 seat theatre in a celebration of 20 years of Creation, 50 years of the Norrington Room and 400 years since Shakespeare’s death
Tickets: £10 - £28. Time: 7.30pm..

Transports   theatre In Oxford
Saturday 6th February: A volatile fifteen year old is shunted into her final foster home. Her foster mother is an eccentric chatterbox who keeps her Kindertransport past hidden in a trunk. As youth plays cat and mouse with age, their stories collide with devastating consequences. Bittersweet, knife-sharp, heart-breaking new writing from Pipeline Theatre. Weaving film and a sumptuously evocative underscore, jumping in time between the ‘70s and the 2nd WW, and located around two, monolithic, life-size, vertical railway tracks, ‘Transports’, by turns funny and moving, is a journey not quickly forgotten. It was inspired by the experiences of designer Alan Munden’s mother, who came to England on the last Kindertransport.
Time: 7.30pm. Tickets: £12, £10.
Turning Leaves   theatre In Oxford
Tuesday 9th February: Crime and the treatment of criminals ought to be black and white. One rule for everyone. But is justice free from the assumptions of gender and class ever really possible?

Trees Grow High A response to media controversies about female perpetrators of sex crimes. Oh Danny Boy A dark and destructive reflection on society’s responsibility to its outcasts. Turning Leaves A discussion of the establishment’s attitudes to crime and whether true impartiality is ever possible
Tickets: £10, £6 (concs) Time: 8pm.
Standby For Tape Back-Up   theatre In Oxford

The true story of one man’s journey into synchronicity and madness.
