CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Creation is a nomadic creative force in Oxford, with a rich history of creating unforgettable theatre in unusual locations over the company's 17 year history. With the appointment of new Executive Director James Erskine, the company is embracing the power and possibility artistic collaborations, as well as arts/business partnerships, and The Factory's radical approach is a natural artistic fit. Blackwells hosted Creation for the first time inside its world-famous bookshop last spring with Doctor Faustus which proved so popular the run was extended and extra standing room added to cope with demand. Its recent production of Hamlet with The Factory also sold out. The actors will perform in the bookshop's Norrington Room, which lies under Oxford University's Trinity College Quad, surrounded by more than 200,000 books. The staging will be semi-improvised and an audience of approximately 300 will stand alongside the actors as well as seated around the space.Performers Alex Barclay, Alex Bartram, Alex Blake, Scott Brooksbank, Leila Crerar, Joanna Croll, Federay Holmes, John Hopkins, Madeleine Hyland, Stephanie Lane, Ben Lambert, Rhys Meredith, Jennifer Monaco, Amanda Morgan, Simon Muller, Marianne Oldham, Jonathan Oliver, James Oxley, Lizzie Phillips, Laura Rees, Liz Richardson, Jethro Skinner, Ben Thompson, Sian Williams.
