SUMMARY

http://vimeo.com/34914585

This will be the most ambitious show that Oxford has seen in recent years; with one of the biggest budgets on record for a University Playhouse show. Aside from gathering the universities finest acting talent, The Hothouse will make use of innovative projection to produce theatre on an epic, cinematic scale.

The raw drama of The Hothouse is
 hauntingly funny and alarmingly prescient.
 Initially written in 1958 but put aside until
 1980, the play follows an oppressive
 bureaucratic mental institution and the
 political workings inside. We experience
 only the staff, and yet the patients remain disquietingly present throughout. Pinter confronts the audience with sparkling humour and unsettling threat in equal measure creating one of his most harrowing works.
