During the COVID-19 lockdowns, to deal with isolation and lack of live theatre, we started gathering some of our favourite people every Tuesday & Saturday night to read scripts over Zoom. We read all 38 Shakespeare plays in six months. Then we kept going. We decided to create mini-seasons featuring highlights from the canons of major writers across generations, plus a few bonus episodes thrown in.


All of our readings are available to enjoy as full videos on our YouTube page but we’re also releasing them in audio form so they can be accessed through your favourite podcast app.


This episode is our cold reading of Tom Stoppard’s classic reverse-shot version of Hamlet, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, featuring reprise performances from the cast of our Hamlet reading.
