Runway, 17th June, 19:00
Skid and Bean sit in the park, smoking fags and playing Buzzfeed quizzes. Nyla, a Muslim and Mancunian, is moving in, and she couldn’t feel more out of place. Set in an Oxfordshire village, Runway explores the space between teenager and adult as they wrestle with friendship, loyalty and growing up. Runway is a bittersweet look into our need to move on and out of where we call home.
Give Me One Moment In Time, 18th June, 19:00
Songs, comedy, and the heartache of trying to understand a friend’s suicide. This one-man play is happy, sad, and often silly. A life-affirming love letter to shared moments in a theatre. Writer, actor and comedian Doug Crossley was a 2018 Writer on Attachment at Oxford Playhouse and has being shortlisted for several playwriting awards, most recently the Mercury Weinberger Playwriting Prize.
Run Stanley Run, 20th to 22nd June, 20:00
Morecambe, a northern seaside town, is struggling to survive just like its inhabitants. Mandy’s avoiding her Uncle Rick’s dodgy dance moves. Sarah’s watching a festival she’s never been to on the telly. Albert’s spending the little time he has left down the pub. And Stanley’s run away from school. But will anybody notice? Does anybody care? Run Stanley Run is a new poetic play written and performed by Rowan Padmore, about bereavement, loss and loneliness.
Rhiannon Unbridled, 25th June, 19:00
A one-woman storytelling show with original music. Rhiannon Unbridled takes the story of the Celtic Goddess Rhiannon out of its well-preserved Welsh Medieval manuscript in the Bodleian Library, and wrestles with it. Jackie’s stories of her girlhood fascination with horses, and developing relationships with the opposite sex are interlocked with chapters of Rhiannon’s life, until the narratives collide in a need to rescue both modern woman and ancient goddess from the forces that bridle them.
British Vogue, 27th to 29th June, 20:00
Life is f**king terrifying. Have you decided what it is that you want to do with your life yet? Only one question is worse than this. Where are you really from? With an ominous birthday looming, Ashanti decides it’s time to subvert the quarter life crisis by trying to figure out answers to both those questions. Just after this drink. And Netflix binge. Tomorrow, for sure...
Mantra, 29th June, 17:30

The Three Little Pigs, 13th July, 11:00 and 14:00
A brand new version of the classic story of the three little pigs set in Paris. A grumpy old wolf is a chef who wants some pigs' tails for his soup. Will the little pigs outwit the wolf and what kind of house will they build? A funny, warm-hearted and interactive rustic tale to make you squeal with laughter - bristling with puppets, live music and lots of joining in.
