Home What's On Stage An Oak Tree

An Oak Tree

A parent loses their daughter to a car accident. Now nothing is what it is. It’s like they're in a play – but they don’t know the words. Theatre Exile favorite Pearce Bunting is joined by a different actor each night, who walks on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play they’re in… until they’re in it. An Oak Tree is a bold and absurdly comic play about loss, suggestion, and the power of the mind. A breathtaking projection of a performance - from a hypnotist to their subject and from one actor to another. “It is like watching your own heart being mugged. You know exactly how it is happening, but you still can’t prevent it.” — The Guardian
