BOATMAN TOWN by GLYN MAXWELL, James Street Tavern, Oxford, 8 – 10 March 2024

A new version of Everyman by GLYN MAXWELL
Directed by Helen Eastman

The last day of our sun-soaked hols on a strange island in the Med – and it just had to pour with rain! Yvonn and her friends take shelter in The English Pub, where else? But the service is terrible, the whole place seems dead and Yvonn can hear a child crying… Something bad has happened here, or is it about to happen? And is anyone going to be strong enough, kind enough, good enough, to stop it? One by one Yvonn and her friends will be tested in this modern, drunken, tragicomic take on Everyman, the great medieval morality play.

Creation Theatre presents the world premiere of Glyn Maxwell’s Boatman Town. Set in an English pub,it has toured the pubs of Oxfordshire and beyond. If you can’t make it to the show in person, then you can book a ticket to watch a filmed version, which will be available for three days in March.

“A night of uproarious laughter and tricksy tragedy” Ox In A Box

“A delightful evening, skilfully performed by a great ensemble, proof positive of the magic of theatre” The Spy In The Stalls
