Oxford Playhouse and Untied Artists present the world premiere production of brand new family show The Boy Who Bit Picasso at The Edge Theatre & Arts Centre on 14th April 2015.
The Boy Who Bit Picasso is inspired by Antony Penrose’s well-loved book. This charming children’s production follows a boy called Tony who becomes friends with Pablo Picasso, telling the true story of how Tony spent his childhood with one of the greatest artists who ever lived.
In this interactive new show, audiences are invited to take part in a variety of hands-on art and craft activities, aimed at children aged 4 to 8 and their families. There will also be storytelling and music composed by Untied Artists, as children are introduced to one of the 20th century’s most influential artists.
The Boy Who Bit Picasso is devised and directed by Jake Oldershaw, co-founder of the innovative Untied Artists theatre company. Untied Artists won a Fringe First award with their production For Their Own Good, and Intimate History has been performed at renowned arts festivals internationally. Jake’s acclaimed show The Story of the Four Minute Mile was an Oxford Playhouse Production in 2012, taking place in the Iffley running track where Roger Bannister first broke the record.
Tuesday 14th April 11am & 2pm, Tickets: £8 / £6
