Oxfordshire's arts news in brief

* Imagine mixing up Shakespeare and Bollywood. Well you can see the results for yourself as Pegasus welcomes an unusual production of a rarely performed Shakespeare play Cymbeline this Saturday.

Set in Bombay, India in 1993, against the backdrop of the Bollywood film industry, Cymbeline features one of Shakespeare’s most tender and charming heroines, Innogen. When her father, the movie mogul King Cymbeline banishes her poor but worthy husband, she swaps her sari for breeches and sets off into the slums of Bombay disguised as a boy. Call 01865 812150 or see pegasustheatre.org.uk/shows/cymbeline/

* National Takeover Day at The Pegasus will be a scream on Friday for the teenagers running the East Oxford theatre for the day. But with two shows on stage, an intergenerational arts day and full involvement in all front of house, administrative and technical activities, it’ll mean hard work for everyone involved.

The first performance starting at 10am is from the renowned children’s theatre company Theatre Hullabaloo with Luna (repeated at 1.30pm) for 2-5 year olds, at which young people will be selling tickets and ushering audiences.

During the afternoon older people are welcome to take part in an Intergenerational Arts Day designed and delivered by youth theatre members. This annual event also features joint arts workshops, games and debates. Call 01865 812150 or see pegasustheatre.org.uk
