TOUCHING THE VOID

Wed 26 to Sat 29 May

Life, hanging by a thread. What happens when you look death squarely in the face and how do you find the strength to crawl back towards life? Following its sold-out world premiere in Bristol and critically acclaimed West End run, Touching the Void returns for one week only for a global broadcast, live from Bristol Old Vic.

Tickets £15

BLINDNESS

Fri 28 May to Sat 5 Jun

A socially distanced sound installation seated on stage at Oxford Playhouse. Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens has adapted Nobel Prize-winner José Saramago’s dystopian novel Blindness as a sound installation, directed by Walter Meierjohann with immersive binaural sound design by Ben and Max Ringham. Juliet Stevenson voices the Storyteller/Doctor’s wife in this gripping story of the rise and, ultimately, profoundly hopeful end of an unimaginable global pandemic.

FOUR QUARTETS

Mon 14 to Sat 26 Jun

https://bit.ly/3ukEQ2v

Ralph Fiennes directs and stars in a world premiere adaptation of T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets to welcome audiences back to live theatre. Compelling, moving and symphonic, Four Quartets was the culminating achievement of his career as a poet, offering four interwoven meditations on the nature of time, faith, and the quest for spiritual enlightenment. Mostly written before WWII when the closure of playhouses during the Blitz interrupted Eliot’s work in theatre, the Four Quartets (Burnt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages and Little Gidding), contain some of the most exquisite and unforgettable reflections upon surviving periods of national crisis.

Tickets from £10

UNDER THE MASK

Mon 12 to Thu 15 Jul

https://bit.ly/3nKvwm6

In March 2020, hundreds of final year medical students finished their studies early and started work on the frontline of the Coronavirus pandemic. This is the story of one of them, a newly qualified doctor, Jaskaran. New writer Shaan Sahota is a junior doctor who lived this experience. She is also a member of the 2020 Tamasha Playwrights group. Under The Mask is Shaan's extraordinary debut, recorded on location in real Covid wards. This installation brings you, the audience, onto the OP stage. Seated in your own chair, lit by your own lighting state, listening through headphones to this fully immersive, 360-degree binaural experience you will be at the heart of this remarkable story of fortitude and hope.
