The Oxford Playhouse are looking for academics to come and speak at their Spotlight pre-show discussion group. The group meets each week to discuss the issues raised by the play currently showing before going to see the performance. As a guest speaker, you would give a 5-10 minute introduction to an idea using your general or specialist knowledge, which then allows the group to reflect and discuss their own thoughts in a relaxed and informal setting. Lunch and two free tickets to the show for any night of the week are provided in return.
The next plays up for discussion are:
A Tale of Two Cities on Thursday 22nd September 2016
Sand in the Sandwiches, a play about John Betjeman, on Thursday 27th October 2016.
No knowledge of the play itself is necessary, and any ideas for discussion are welcome.
