Citizen Theatre are proud to announce a brand new podcast that goes behind the scenes and delves into the creative practices of some of Citizen Theatre’s regular collaborators. This rare insight into different areas of independent theatre making, from costume design to stage management, directing to writing and devising, performance and producing, takes listeners on a journey through the intricacies, joys and challenges of making critically acclaimed independent theatre and music theatre.
Hosted by Tomas Parrish (When The Light Leaves) and sound production/composition by Imogen Cygler (Citizen Theatre Resident Composer/MD), The Citizen Theatre Podcast unearths the beauty and creativity that lies behind all aspects of Citizen Theatre, its artists, and what moves them.
