Creation Theatre Company, a registered charity, presents lively and accessible open air Shakespeare productions and workshops in extraordinary Oxford locations. This summer its new production, Antony and Cleopatra, is being performed in the stunning rooftop Amphitheatre at the Saïd Business School until 3 September.
All net profits from the Gala Evening on 18th August will be donated to Sobell House, a registered charity which provides care and support to thousands of residents and their families across Oxfordshire who are affected by terminal illness.
David Parrish, Creation’s Artistic and Executive Director, said today “We are delighted to be supporting this worthy Oxford charity. We are aiming for a sell-out on this day so that the donation can be the biggest possible. Anyone who wants to support Sobell House by watching our show should book for 18 August.”
The famous lovers will be played by two of Creation’s favourite actors - Tom Peters (who has played Macbeth, Robin Hood and Jesus in past Creation productions) and Lizzie Hopley who has both acted with the company (she was a spirited Beatrice in Creation’s 2004 and 2008 productions of Much Ado About Nothing) and has also written several Creation shows including The Snow Queen, The Oxford Passion & Hans Christian Andersen’s Magical Tales. Helen Tennison directs with designs by Neil Irish and Sarah Bacon.
Sobell House Fundraiser, Kevin Game, said “ We’re delighted to be able to pair up again with Creation, they have become synonymous with Oxford in the Summer and Sobell House is equally synonymous with caring for people throughout the whole of Oxfordshire and it looks like it will be a fantastic evening”
