Script In Hand Podcast

Following a successful first season, the Script in Hand podcast will return for a second season. The podcast will return this autumn to dissect scripts, talk play texts and explore characters from a mix of well-known playwrights and some lesser-known gems. The podcast is co-hosted by up-and-coming directors and script enthusiasts Lexie Ward and Meg Robinson and will delve into a diverse array of 12 hand-picked plays and will be joined by guest speakers throughout the season.

The first season (which is available wherever you get your podcasts) has seen the ladies cover plays including Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Mischief Theatre's The Play That Goes Wrong, Chekhov's Three Sisters and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's Emilia

The second season will kick off on October 7th with POSH by Olivier Award-winning playwright Laura Wade. Lexie and Meg will be joined by the first special guest of the season, director and JMK runner up 2019 Oscar Toeman to discuss what makes POSH the perfect play for current times.  

Lexie Ward, co-founder of Script in Hand, says; “Playwrights really are the most talented and genius folk, this is basically our love letter to them and their work. We were simply over the moon and staggered by the response from our first season, feedback was incredible and it’s made us even more excited for the launch of season 2.” When asked about what followers can expect from the season, Lexie continued “We’ve spent our down-time putting together an incredible programme of wonderful scripts and have managed to secure some special guests who will bring a fresh approach and new angle to the discussion. There’s clearly an appetite for a podcast like this and we hope our listeners enjoy discovering new plays or revisiting ones they’re familiar with at a new level.”

A selection of plays the ladies will cover.

Season 2 will also see an array of special guests grace the ‘podcast couch’ including directors Kash Arshad and Alasdair Hunter, and playwright Tatty Hennessy, author of A Hundred Words for the Snow, who will provide a backstage pass to the inner workings of her text.
