Oxford: pretty manic isn’t it?
We’ve seen plays and debates, grad schemes and concerts, nights in and nights out, nights round and about; but what’s it in aid of, the crux of the matter, the essence, the reason, ‘le joie dans le vivre’? The point, my dear friends, what keeps us all going, is laughter and cheer, a pint and a story. So here’s to our readers, the good and the bad, one final huzzah to put in the bag.
Merry Oxmas folks!
THEATRE – The Double/BT Studio/ Tuesday to Saturday, 7:30pm/ £6.00
Dostoyevsky’s Yakov Petrovich Golyadkin is struggling. His job is going nowhere, he can barely interact with other people and his life has become devoid of meaning. So when a man enters his life who looks exactly like him, only infinitely more intelligent and charming, he begins to lose hold of not only his identity but also his sanity.
CONCERT – Advent Carol Service / Exeter College/ Friday, 5:30 pm
You know the deal.
NIGHT OUT – Jinglebell Boogie/ Emporium/ Wednesday/ £6 OTD
The ultimate feelgood Oxmas night with 50% of all proceeds going to ‘Aspire Oxford’, a charity for the long-term unemployed and homeless in Oxford.
SOUL SELLING – Event: Internships/ Location: God knows/ When: Soonish/ Costs: Everything
Yup. VERSA staff are just as f****d as you are. Help..?
