This is a podcast for theatre students, makers, critics, goers and anyone else with an interest in theatre and the arts! Based in London, we attempt to review one play per episode in a way that is fun and accessible. We like to talk about plays that we have seen, different issues that arise in the theatre industry, and engage with a whole lot of other interesting cultural ideas and debates.

11/10 podcasts for a 3/10 theatre enthusiast
I can't say I am the biggest theatre enthusiast but I have very much enjoyed listening to these podcasts. It has been incredibly easy listening and makes the somewhat 'wanky' world of theatre more accessible to the everyman (or plebs like me). You can also pick up some new fancy theatre lingo to drop at your next soirée or on a tinder date. But in all seriousness, if you are looking for something fun and different then give these podcasts a listen!
Loved it. Listening to this podcast has generated a renewed interest in Shakespeare for me
