As You Like It

'Shakespeare’s poetic and irresistibly funny comedy of mistaken identity and love.'

Set in the modern world of alternative facts and fiercely jealous leaders, the young Rosalind and her friend Celia find themselves pawns in a power struggle. Together they decide to flee the city and its politics for the forest where they discover a countryside wonderland of peace and harmony. Disguised as a boy, Rosalind meets Orlando and, amidst the intoxicating atmosphere of the forest, counsels him in the art of love.

One of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies, with the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all, 'As You Like It' is transformed in a bold new production by Kate Saxon and former OP resident company Shared Experience.

Bacchae

By Euripides.

Performed in Ancient Greek with English subtitles.

The god Dionysos has come to the city of Thebes, where Pentheus rules with cool composure. The young king seeks to ban all worship of his cousin Dionysos, whom he insists is a fake divinity. Little does he know: the god is watching his every move. Dionysos turns the women of the city mad, and plays cat and mouse with Pentheus. Things are about to change.

Euripides’ Bacchae, performed and translated ceaselessly since its first production in the 5th century BCE, tells a story of divine revenge. This version, performed in the original Ancient Greek (with English surtitles) explores the boundaries between masculine and feminine, individual and community, human and divine.

Candide

Music by Leonard Bernstein. Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

In the fairy-tale town of Thunder-ten-Tronck, Candide is taught that all is for the best. However, after being cast out into the harsh realities of the world, our hero is exposed to a comic array of injustice and misfortune, calling into question his optimistic philosophy.

Based on the famous work by Voltaire, this Grammy award-winning musical from Leonard Bernstein, with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, brings the satire to life.

Inspired by Monty Python, this playful production journeys across the globe with Candide, enjoying the absurd contrasts between the bright musical style and farcically tragic chain of events.

Driving Miss Daisy

Theatre Royal Bath Productions presents: In Atlanta 1948, the prickly 72-year-old Jewish widow, Daisy Werthan, crashes her car. Deemed too old to drive, her son hires her a chauffeur, an African-American named Hoke Colburn.

How to Die of a Broken Heart

Heartbreak changed Femi’s body and life forever. This is her solo theatre show about love, illness, and not giving up.

Through stories of her failed relationships, Femi lays bare the desperation so many of us feel when it comes to love, and invites us to both laugh at her mistakes, and accept our own.

Instructions for Border Crossing

Written and performed by Daniel Bye.

A twelve-year-old girl sneaks across the border of her own country. Her parents watch her on a computer screen. The works of a half-forgotten performance artist seem to hold the key to bringing down a brutal system operating on our behalf and under our noses. Do you join in? Or do you look the other way?

From the maker of The Price of Everything and Going Viral, Instructions for Border Crossing is an exposed gearbox of a political thriller. Blending Daniel’s trademark storytelling with a series of live interventions from the audience*, the show itself is as unpredictable as the world it describes.

*Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.

Charming and inventive with plenty of interaction, an enormous beanstalk, bags of gold and a smelly old giant.

White Feather Boxer

It’s April 1967. In a shabby boxing gym in Bethnal Green, elderly trainer Jimmy listens to the news: the world’s heavyweight champion, Muhammad Ali, refuses to fight in Vietnam.

It’s a story Jimmy knows all too well. Back during WW1, he was known as the Quaker Boxer; he was a contender. But with Conscription, conscientious objectors went to prison or the firing squad. Jimmy made his choice, but he’s still haunted by those demons from the past. And that’s not even mentioning the demon from his present: Jo, the angry young woman determined to be a boxer. Is that even legal? In his 70s now, training her is going to take all his strength (not to mention patience)…
