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.

I can't really recommend Creation Theatre's productions enough!! Gone are the days of stuffy theatres, uncomfortable seats and tedious repetitions of Shakespeare's plays by actors that do not quite understand how to make it relevant to an audience of the 21st century. Never a dull...More

What an absolute laugh! I came to this completely unaware of what I was getting myself into because it had been organised by my relative as a surprise and I never really thought to Google it. However, that made it even better! Don't search on...More

I took my 16 year old daughter and it was fantastic! We enjoyed the play, the different stops along the way, discovering the city. Very, very recommendable!

This was a deconstructed Midsummer's Night Dream that took place in vignettes across West Oxford, with the different groups eventually meeting up together for scenes inside a churchyard and the church itself. If you are going to put on a Shakespeare play by discarding a...More

After seeing this last year we had to come back - and it was amazing once again! Well done Creation, superb! The dream takes you around the streets of Oxford, as scenes are acted out, and audience engagement is high on the agenda. The cast...More

Dress code last night was 'walking the dog in the park in pouring rain', i.e. wellies and a warm waterproof - but it was pure fun, and I came away with a new understanding of 'street theatre' as it could have been in Shakespeare's time....More

Not knowing what to expect, a group of 7 of us (mostly over 60) booked for this production on a recommendation from a friend. We had a hugely good time, laughed loads and got to see some parts of Oxford we didn't know existed. The...More
