Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic! Creative! Funny! Much Ado about Nothing - I came July 2023. It took place in a playground,using the equipment the children usually play on. True to their name these lovely people are incredibly creative in their approach to all plays. The acting was incredible, from rolling eyes to little nuances in facial movements. The costumes and music particularly fun if you were around in the 80/90s. I mean, Elvis as a Vicar! Need I say more? Come and watch. You will not regret it. A wonderful night out!?.

Creation's latest outdoor family show Wind in the Willows is perfect for young families: short, jolly and totally interactive. It's less than an hour long and the whole time you're moving between different locations around the park, meeting different characters along the way and doing fun tasks with them. There's no sitting down, no fidgeting - and plenty of fresh air and fun (and social distancing)!

Creation are so ingenious. With theatres closed, they have been forced to think creatively and have produced online experiences which are not only different, but actually BETTER than what they might have done in a real venue. We watched their zoom version of Macbeth last night and it was properly intense and fast paced (the script was fairly heavily edited - a wise move) with some very clever effects. With our daughter watching from her college location and us at home, we were able to share the experience, sitting in our darkened rooms and enjoying the bloody vibe. Theatres will be closed again from this week (Nov 2020) so if you're looking for something different to do, you can't go wrong with any of Creation's recent lockdown shows - this spooky Macbeth, their very jolly Merry Wives of Whatsapp or the funny Horatio and Hamlet. If they rerun any of them, do join in!

Wow! Wow! Wow! I am so impressed Creation Theatre Company, i have just watched your virtual Alice show with my young family in Zambia, while other family members watched in Belgium and South Africa at the same time. It was so lovely to watch remotely with them and see them during the performance. It was such a great show, so interactive and the kids loved it. We are seriously impressed you can put on such a amazing show in such difficult circumstances, well done!!

This is the first time, I have seen a play in a bookshop!
It was a really great experience: the actors, props, music and songs were all superb.
I had such a great night out.
I would recommend the Creation Theatre Company to others who enjoy the experience of well known stories told in a creative way.

Creation's Bleak House was a great way to celebrate a birthday, and the highlight of our mini break in Oxford. Great fun, brilliant acting with the cast playing multiple parts and clever use of a limited number of props. Very clever use of space in the bookshop. Music too, what more could we want.

Another superb performance by a versatile team of actors who also sing and play their way though this story to bring it to life in the unique atmosphere of a book shop

This Creation production retells the Bleak House story with verve and imagination and is a must-see. The deceptively simple staging in the Norrington Room works very well, and the five actors as always are able to convincingly take on different characters. The musical elements worked very well to convey the chaos of Chancery, longing, loss, regret and hope etc.

Creation’s production of Bleak House was absolutely superb! Adaptation, set, actors, music, lighting, costumes - everything! I’ve seen most of their productions over the last Fee’s and this was one of the best. I hope it’s not the last time we see it.

I went to see Creation Theatre Company's production of Bleak House in March 2020. It was the fourth production I've seen by them, and it was fantastic (as all the others were, too!) They're so clever in the way they adapt things and add unexpected flourishes, and the talent they all have is incredible. If you're in Oxford, please check them out, no matter what play they're doing - you won't be disappointed.
