Friday 22nd March – The Whalebone Theatre – Joanna Quinn
An aging seaside manor hosts three children crafting their own adventures amid grown-up festivities. A tale unfolds of a whale on a beach, claimed by a determined girl with lofty ambitions. As the children grow, an unexpected story emerges. When war arrives, they’re thrust into unforeseen roles. Raised on stories, it’s now their turn to write their own.
 
Friday 19th April – Siblings – Brigitte Reimann
1960. The border between East and West Germany has closed. For Elisabeth – a young painter – the GDR is her generation’s chance to build a glorious, egalitarian socialist future. For her brother Uli, it is a place of stricture and oppression. Separating them is the ever-wider chasm of the Party line; over them loom the twin spectres of opportunity and fear, and the shadow of their defector brother Konrad. In prose as bold as a scarlet paint stroke, Brigitte Reimann battles with the clash of idealism and suppression, familial loyalty, and desire. The result is this ground-breaking classic of post-war East German literature.
