  "The Clapham Girls' War" Saturday 29th November 7.30 pm
Theatre on the Edge presents the story of how WW1 changed the lives of the women of Hull.
Based on factual events, this new drama with music and poetry looks at the war on the Home Front through the eyes of five fictional characters, who work at Madame Clapham’s in Kingston Square (now The Kingston Theatre Hotel).
They experience the bombings, the shortages and deprivation as they see their menfolk set off for the war. We learn about their hopes and aspirations as women of their time – a period when women did not yet have the vote and had few rights in the workplace or at home.
As featured on BBC Radio Humberside’s WW1 At Home November 11th to 14th.

  "The Mice Who Ate Christmas" Tuesday 30th December 7.30 pm
A Christmas comedy for all ages based on the legend surrounding the writing of Silent Night.
It is 1818 and Edna and Wilbur are having trouble getting into the spirit of Christmas, because they are two particularly hungry village mice who find themselves sailing for Switzerland 'Land of Cheese', that mythical place where the streets are paved with cheese and rivers run brimful of chocolate !
Sheltering in a village church on Christmas Eve, the hungry mice eat through the church organ bellows by mistake, leaving the kindly young priest without a note of music for Midnight Mass
Edna and Wilbur have to hurry to make amends, and in doing so inspire the writing of a brand new Christmas carol.
£9.50/Under 16s £5.00
  "Flanders and Swann Revisited" Saturday 24th January 7.30 pm
Michael Lunts returns to Spotlight with a programme that brings together the songs of Flanders and Swann and the words and wit of Sir John Betjeman.
Featuring a cornucopia of songs, familiar and less familiar, from 'The Hippopotamus' to 'A Transport of Delight', from 'The Gnu' to 'Have Some Madeira, M'Dear', the songs of Flanders and Swann are shown to be rooted in that vision of the recent past often called 'Betjeman's Britain'.
It is a world where Betjeman shares his love of all forms of 'obsolete transport' with Flanders and Swann's evocation of pre-Beeching Britain in 'The Slow Train'.
Wallow in a little nostalgia for a by-gone world and the more gentle humour exemplified by these arch-observers of the national character.
