Announcing An Oak Tree’s Return

18 years after the original run at the Edinburgh Fringe Tim Crouch‘s iconic AN OAK TREE has returned and will be on at The Lyceum Studio until the 27th August. 

AN OAK TREE picked up a Herald Angel when it premiered at the 2005 Edinburgh Festival. The Traverse Theatre run was a sell-out success, and was met with widespread critical acclaim. When it later transferred to Soho Theatre in London it broke box office records. It has since toured the world. To date, over 250 actors have appeared in the production, including Christopher Eccleston, Mike Myers, Frances McDormand, Sophie Okonedo, Roger Lloyd Pack, Joan Allen, F Murray Abraham, Lili Taylor, Kwame Kwei-Armah and Toby Jones. 

Caryl Churchill once described AN OAK TREE as ‘a play about theatre, a magic trick, a laugh and a vivid experience of grief’ and claimed ‘it spoils you for a while for other plays’. It is certainly not one to miss.
