An Oak Tree- Tim crouch

“…it spoils you for a while for other plays.” – Caryl Churchill

When I say sleep, you’re free again.

See the play that shaped a theatre landscape in this rare revival. When it opened in 2005 Tim Crouch’s An Oak Tree changed the rules of the game, bringing into the centre of its action an actor who has neither seen nor read the play.

In a performance of controlled virtuosity, the playwright guides that actor through a story of loss, suggestion and the power of the mind.

Through the life of this Obie Award-winning play Tim has worked with some of the great actors in the world – from Frances McDormand to F Murray Abraham, from Sophie Okonedo to Laurie Anderson, from Geoffrey Rush to Peter Dinklage. No two shows are the same. Each ‘vividly celebrates the live, raw, communal experience of theatre’ (Financial Times). This is an audience experience like no other.
