Man turns tree into girl.
Set in a stage hypnotist’s act, An Oak Tree is 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 until they’re in it.
An Oak Tree broke the mould when it opened in 2005 and is now recognized as one of the most influential plays of the last decade. It’s breathless balance of accessible story, complex idea and rich theatricality has won awards around the world.
It comes to Warwick Arts Centre fresh from runs at the National Theatre, London and the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe.
“The show has an incredible emotional pungency…a moving meditation on the colour of grief, the musical pain of loss, the nature of theatre and the extraordinary transforming possibilities of art itself.” ★★★★ The Guardian
