An opportunity for an Oxford humanities researcher to lead a Spotlight discussion event this autumn.
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 OP 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 21st September: The Wipers Times
• Thursday 2nd November: Driving Miss Daisy
• Thursday 16th November: As You Like It
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.
