Outdoor theatre at Osterley Park
This article is about our 2018 Outdoor Theatre offer. Please check our What's On page for information on our 2019 theatre events.
Set within the beautiful grounds of Osterley Park, with Robert Adam’s architecturally stunning building as your backdrop, this is theatre with a difference. We are delighted to welcome back both DOT Productions and SixteenFeet Productions to Osterley, for another summer of excitement and drama. We are also delighted to welcome to Osterley for the first time OperaUpClose with a performance of 'Donizetti's Maria Stuarda' at the end of the summer.
Why not make a day of it and visit the formal gardens for a relaxing stroll through the flower garden or see the house and explore Adam’s masterpiece.
‘A Woman of No Importance’
Sat 28 July, 7.30-9.45pm
Skilfully adapted by DOT Productions, who brought us Jane Austen's Emma in 2017, we are delighted to bring Oscar Wilde's A Woman Of No Importance to Osterley.
The Stables Walled Garden is a beautifully secluded location in Osterley Park, next to the Tudor Stables and Brewhouse. Bring along your rugs and blankets, or portable chairs, and enjoy a summer evening picnic before the performance begins at 7pm. The Brewhouse Café will be open all evening serving a range of food and drink.

'Donizetti's Maria Stuarda'
We round out the summer with Opera at Osterley. OperaUpClose present their new English version of Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda, bringing two ferocious Tudor Queens to life. With one performance on the Portico and a second in the Entrance Hall, you can experience Donizetti’s powerful melodies and tap into the Tudor history of the original manor house built in the 1560s. Performed in concert-style, enjoy a unique blend of heritage and music.
