Description:

Think about those books, the ones that you'll always go back to, those...

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.

Truly fantastic. It had us all including our 12 and 15 year old in fits of laughter. A great way to see Oxford and a great way to enjoy the bard.

What a night! One briefcase delivery and we were off...finding clues, stalking characters and zig-zagging all over Oxford; Creation Theatre have created an immersive experience to rival the very best. The storyline is slightly more sporadic than the usual performances as you chase characters into buildings, visit fairies in abandoned sheds and witness tomfoolery in ye olde graveyards so I'd...

Wow! What a show. Creation pull off yet another extraordinary theatre experience. We were transported to another world of intrigue, agents and clues. Our 9 yo daughter was completely entranced as were we, where else would you be asked to make the sound of an angry duck? Go and forget all your cares and troubles for 2 and a half... More

This was a great evening's entertainment which we (two parents, two teenagers and their great uncle) thoroughly recommend. Every summer Creation do something special outdoors and this year's venue is the University Parks where they presented Shakespeare's Hamlet. It was really easy to get to, fun to watch and all done by 9 o'clock so we could still drive home... More

This was our second outing with Creation Theatre and once again it didn't disappoint. From the get-go of meeting a bunch of strangers on a street corner and then following the clues and the cast around Oxford every minute was a full-on sprint through one of Shakespeare's most lovable plays. The professional actors were flawless in their comedic delivery although... More

This was an amazing experience, which I attended with a small group of friends. It is an immersive theater experience with the action happening all around you in various unexpected locations in Oxford, which you have to find as you go. The actors were brilliant; lots of energy, improvisation where there was audience participation and lots of laughter (from the... More

The show itself is very good, fun and excellently thought out. They were thinking of re-running it (a midsummer nights dream) next year and I'd go back. I wonder if they could make other predictions interactive like this one. The reason for only giving it 3/5 is due to the poor administration. I booked three tickets and was told my... More
