Isn’t second week awful!? What with essays, hangovers, and diminishing bank accounts, the Oxford mire is ever increasing. To help navigate you through the shit, VERSA is introducing the ‘The Humbug’, our highlights of the week past, and picks of the week to come. So, here we go…


THE PICKS

THEATRE – Copenhagen/Michael Pilch Studio/ Wednesday-Saturday, 7:30/ £7

Darkly comic, shocking, and poignant in turn, ‘Copenhagen’ is Michael Frayn’s masterpiece exploration, set in the afterlife, of what drives us to do what we do, and what might happen if we could take it back.

TALK – Malcolm Rifkind/ All Souls, Old Library/ Tuesday, 8:30-10:00pm

Former Chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee; former Defence Secretary and Foreign Secretary on:
Putin’s Russia: A Riddle Wrapped in a Mystery Inside an Enigma?

As part of the world renowned Oxford Leider Festival, the Phoenix Piano Trio will perform Shumann on the 160th anniversary of his death.

NIGHT OUT – GLUE/ Cellar/ Thursday/ £3 before midnight (with name on the wall) or £5 OTD

Lively, disco vibe – not only #edgy but also #ethical, with all surplus profit going to OxHop, the Oxford homelessness charity.
