Theatre Talks

Theatre Talks are a wonderful way to learn more about the historical, literary and theatrical  contexts of the plays and provide a rewarding opportunity to discuss the productions in a relaxed and informal setting before seeing them come to life on stage. 

 
Visiting companies offer a number of pre and post show discussions. Sometimes with artistic staff and also members of the company. All shows are free but are ticketed - see below for details.
