A fortnightly show featuring the best of the local theatre scene in St Albans and beyond. Hosted by Ben Tiplady & Susie Wyeth
Lockdown 2.0: The shows go on
We’re just over halfway through lockdown 2.0 but this time it hasn’t put a full stop on the theatre scene in St Albans. Just a few days into the restrictions we were able to sit back and watch Company of Ten’s show Relatively Speaking which was filmed beforehand in front of an audience and streamed nightly.
Emily from Blackbox theatre joins us on this weeks show to tell us about their lockdown friendly project “The Rehersal Room”. Get in touch with the team here if you want to participate this month or in the future.
There’s also a lot to look forward to as the festive period approaches. Company of Ten is planning to take us on a journey to The Secret Garden (live streamed and in person) and Maltings Theatre with Alban Arena is going on a flight of fancy with Peter Pan.

Ben (and his Mum!) go down to the Maltings Theatre to watch The Regina Monologues, interviews the director, friend of the show, Anna Franklin.
The show enjoyed a sell out run!
Please note – this episode was recorded before the 4th November lockdown restrictions were announced. But if you want to enjoy some theatre from the comfort of your own home, Company of Ten is streaming its latest offering Relatively Speaking
Back to the theatre, or watch from home
What a joy it is to be back at the theatre, and safely so. But for those who aren’t yet comfortable going back in person, we spoke to Company of Ten about their hybrid show programme for the new season.
In this show we also review the recent offering from Company of Ten at the Abbey Theatre, Building the Wall.
