Suddenly Last Summer at Oxford Playhouse
University of Oxford student company the Experimental Theatre Club, a Brighton Fringe Excellence Award nominee, brings a dramatic reimagining of the haunting tale that is Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer to Oxford Playhouse 8th-11th February – following a successful summer tour with performances in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Something unspeakable happened last summer. Something exposing and sickening and raw. And now Sebastian Venable is dead. Catherine, his young cousin, thinks she knows what happened. But will his mother let the truth be heard? An epic adventure into mind, memory and malice, neurosurgeon Dr Cukrowicz fights to find the truth about what happened last summer and prevent any more lives from being destroyed.
Directed by Sammy Glover, this talented student company features set design by Harriet Bourhill and Grace Linden, costume design by Hannah Chilver-Vaughan and music by Georgia Bruce and Tom Stafford. With ETC alumni including Ken Loach, Alan Bennett, Richard Curtis, Ian Hislop and Rowan Atkinson, this is a rare chance to see one of Tennessee Williams’ most thrilling works by one of Oxford University’s leading theatre companies.
Tickets for Suddenly Last Summer at Oxford Playhouse start at £11.50 and are available from the Ticket Office on 01865 305305 or book online.
