Cheek By Jowl’s French ensemble also make a welcome return to the Playhouse following the success of Andromaque, to perform another French classic Ubu Roi.

There’s plenty on offer for families at Easter time, with David Wood’s delightful stage adaptation of Eric Hill’s books in Spot’s Birthday Party for ages 2 to 6. For everyone 7 and over, balletLORENT return to the Playhouse with a new adaptation of the classic Grimm fairy-tale, Rapunzel, told through stunning dance theatre.

As well as the very best drama, this season also offers dance from Richard Alston Dance Company and Jasmin Vardimon Dance Company, comedy from Jeremy Hardy and Mock the Week’s Andy Parsons and music from National Youth Jazz Orchestra. Plus don’t miss our Fridays at 5pm events with speakers including Ron Moody, Richard Alston and Michaela Strachan.

This spring, you can experience a unique life drawing performance in Still Life at Modern Art Oxford or reflect on stories of home when you travel in an intimate show at Oxford Youth Hostel Association called My Heart is Hitchhiking Down Peachtree Street.
