A Museum in Baghdad | Student Ticket & Travel Offer Oxford
Experience one of our newest plays, A Museum in Baghdad, for just £20 with our Student Ticket and Travel Offer. You don't have to be a student at the University of Oxford to attend - any student in higher education can go on our Student Coach Trips, as long as you can get to the pickup location.
In 1926, the nation of Iraq is in its infancy, and British archaeologist Gertrude Bell is founding a museum in Baghdad. In 2006, Ghalia Hussein is attempting to reopen the museum after looting during the war.
Decades apart, these two women share the same goals: to create a fresh sense of unity and nationhood, and to make the world anew through the museum and its treasures. But in such unstable times, questions remain. Who is the museum for? Whose culture are we preserving? And why does it matter when people are dying?
Pick up will be outside the Taylorian Institute at the University of Oxford* at 3.30pm. The coach will bring you to the RSC where your tickets will be handed to you on the coach. Your entry time to The Play's The Thing will be from 5pm. After the performance, the coach will pick you up from the RSC and return you to the Taylorian Institute.*
*End Time is subject to change.
