After a stellar run at the Burton Taylor Studio One Small Step goes on its Oxfordshire Tour

By Sarah Edwards

Get set for a free intergalactic adventure! Following five-star reviews across UK and international tours, and a stellar run at the Burton Taylor Studio over Easter, One Small Step is taking off on its free tour around Oxfordshire this spring and summer.

This Oxford Playhouse production, directed by Toby Hulse (Bath Time, Bed Time, Tea Time) and written by former Oxford Playhouse stage door keeper David Hastings, recounts the race between the United States and the Soviet Union to send the first man to the moon.

In 60 thrilling minutes, two actors conjure up more than 40 characters and 50 years of history using simple household objects, bringing to life the history of this amazing exploration and human endeavour into the unknown.
