Oxford Playhouse

  • About
    Oxford Playhouse has a well-earned reputation as one of Britain's leading theatres. From its foundation in the 1920s to the present day, it has been associated with the launch of many stellar careers and productions; its repertory years saw companies which included such names as John Gielgud, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Ronnie Barker and Dirk Bogarde. Its association with the University of Oxford brought Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor to our stage (in a memorable 1960s production of Dr Faustus). Other notable student performers include Rowan Atkinson and Dudley Moore, as well as future talents who were destined to grace a different kind of stage, like politicians Shirley Williams and Nigel Lawson, director John Schlesinger and writers Alan Bennett and Christopher Hampton.

    Oxford Playhouse and its Burton Taylor Studio present and produce a wide range of live performance. The programme includes the best of British and international drama, family shows, contemporary dance and music, student and amateur shows, comedy, lectures and poetry.

    We also create live performance here in Oxford. The Playhouse produces and tours its own shows, hosts Artists in Residence and presents Playhouse Plays Out, an ongoing series of off-site events which happen at locations across the county.

    Our Learning team work with over 15,000 people each year through post show discussions, workshops, work experience, a resident young people’s theatre company and holiday schemes.
