An intricate story of loss and suggestion performed by two people: the playwright himself and a different second actor at each performance – an actor who will have neither seen nor read a word of the play they’re in.

10th anniversary revival of this ground-breaking and Obie Award-winning production by one of the UK’s most original theatre-makers.

A rare chance to catch this acclaimed show. Reviews are from the NT in 2015.

“Shocking, grippingly moving in moments but momentarily funny: it is held together by the sincerity of Crouch... Strong stuff. ”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“A wide-eyed desire to explore art, a genuine desire to entertain an audience, and a powerful reverence for the sanctity of grief”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Reality and fiction start to entwine... Not just theatre about theatre. An Oak Tree is just as concerned with grief. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Theatre, we know, is make-believe. Yet as Tim Crouch’s extraordinary two-person show reminds us, life is make-believe too. ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“A different manifestation of magic.. doesn’t pretend to expunge the differences between art and life but draws attention to them”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“A theatrical gimmick that hampers the emotional integrity of an otherwise moving drama. ”

Paul Vale (The Stage)
