CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

An Oak Tree archiveA father loses his daughter to a car. His response is to meet the loss with a colossal act of projection: the tree next to where she died he transforms into his girl. The man who killed the girl is a stage hypnotist. Since the accident, he's lost the ability to make a convincing suggestion. For the first time since the accident, these two men meet. They meet when the Father volunteers for the Hypnotist's act.

Author Tim Crouch.

An Oak Tree is a two-hander. The Hypnotist is played by Tim Crouch. The Father will be played by a different actor at each performance. That second actor, male or female, will walk on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play they’re in until they’re in it. Like the Father’s response to his loss, this is another act of projection: the projection of a performance given from one actor to another, from an audience onto an individual.Producer News from Nowhere.
