“Better drowned than duffers if not duffers won’t drown”
Intrepid child adventurers, rival pirate gangs and unsinkable friendship take centre stage in our summer production of Swallows and Amazons, made even more special by the setting of Oxford’s beautiful University Parks. Treat the whole family with this perfect summer outing from July to mid-August for a taste of the adventure yourself.
This adaptation, written by Helen Edmondson and featuring music from Neil Hannon, was first seen at the Bristol Old Vic, and we can’t wait to give it the Creation treatment.
