Oxford Student Drama - 125 Years On

WhatsOnStage logo
The Oxford University Dramatic Society is celebrating it's 125th birthday this year with a spectacular showcase of Oxford drama at the Oxford Playhouse at 6pm on Sunday 13th June.

The show is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to come and support generations past and present who have made student drama so successful in this city.

Diana Quick has kindly agreed to be the host for the evening, and there is a line-up of alumni and students which will include an Alumni 24 Hour Play written by Patrick Marber (author of Closer and Don Juan in Soho) and performed by a fully alumni cast including Naomi Frederick and Katherine Parkinson, a collage of scenes from the unforgettable 1980 production of Three Sisters with Imogen Stubbs starring the original cast.

Other highlights promise to be award-winning cabaret duo Frisky and Mannish, a reduced Act V from The Comedy of Errors 2005 tour to Japan, an ensemble piece from 2007's sell-out production of Alice Through The Looking Glass and much much more.

For more information and to book tickets please visit www.ouds125.com or call the Playhouse box office on 01865 305305.

The Peter Glenville Foundation (OUDS President 1934/5) is kindly sponsoring the Gala and OUDS is grateful for their generous support of the society this year.
