Oxford Playhouse Spotlight Discussions

Oxford Playhouse logo

An opportunity for an Oxford humanities researcher to lead a Spotlight discussion event.  

Spotlight is for anyone aged 50 or over with an interest in theatre. Each session is a friendly and relaxed lunchtime meet-up to socialise and talk all things theatre.

Spotlight is led by a member of Oxford Playhouse staff, joined by a researcher to talk more about their role in the current show, or themes and issues explored in this season’s productions.

Researchers will be asked to give a short introduction of 10-15 minutes exploring themes in the play, the writer, significant historical productions, adaptations etc.


Event dates and details are as follows:

• Thursday 8 February: The Kite Runner

• Thursday 15 March: The Winslow Boy

• Thursday 19 April: The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk 

All sessions run from 12:30pm - 14:00pm.

Researchers will be given two free tickets to watch the related show, subject to availability on the date and time of their choice. Sandwiches and tea/coffee during the Spotlight session will also be provided.
