Overview

Think about those books, the ones that you'll always go back to, those moments in life where you think 'that's a bit like that chapter' or 'you're just like that character', those are the stories we love. We don't just want to leave those books on the shelf though, we take them down, hand them around, share them out and bring them to life. All over Oxford we find unusual spaces - these stories aren't set in theatres so we don't put them there. Castles, antique mirror tents, college gardens, bookshops and factories... we'll go wherever the stories take us, and so far we've taken over 500,000 people with us. From the thousands of children who've told classic stories in new ways through our education programme, to our professional actors and directors, you're always most likely to find us lost in a good book. 18 years, 54 shows, half a million audience members aged 5-95...we are Oxford's own Creation Theatre Company.

Creation Theatre brought The Faerie Thorn to Blackwells Bookshop this week from N.Ireland. I laughed through the whole play and literally had face-ache. I do hope they bring it again next year as I recommend it so highly. 'Alice' was also a wonderful production and...More

Marvelous! A slick production in a very unusual setting (the Mathematics Institute). One word of warning though, the background sound effects played havoc with my hearing aids! Was there a heater in the room "off" ( I do hope so (if you've seen the play...More

We watched the last show on the last day & are really glad we did. It was very well produced, directed and acted. The venue ( Maths Institute) worked really well. Over the years we have enjoyed many of Creation's productions and 1984 is certainly...More

Bloody brilliant. I had no idea what to expect. Heard about the book; never read it, heard about the film; never saw it. Saw the play last night and now I want to read the book and see the film. Amazing production, brilliant acting. Go...More

This production is genius! The space is completely atmospheric and sets the scene perfectly. The acting is superb. Go and see it! Frankly, everything I have seen by Creation Theatre has been surprising, stimulating and fabulous.

I was visiting Oxford and had high hopes to see an adaptation of one of my favourite novels from the youngster times. What a disappointment! No formal experiments, quite poor technological approach (very small screens), unbearably realistic interpretation. No surprises. For someone who was raised...More

I've seen several Creation Theatre offerings, almost always of Shakespeare, so I wasn't sure what to expect of their production of 1984. It was brilliant. Staged in the news Maths Institute, it uses minimal props (basically, lighting and video screens) that are operated by the...More

Unusual space, original staging, clever interpretation, good acting, great use of minimal props. Really glad I went, it's one of my favourite books so I could easily have hated it. Disturbing at times, as it should be. A very good night out. Beware the wing...More
