They went from strength to strength with new listeners all over the globe during their recent second season. Now Script in Hand will return next week to dissect scripts, talk play texts and explore characters from a heady mix of well-known playwrights paired with lesser known gems.

After covering a collection of fascinating plays such as Guards at the Taj, ear for eye and POSH in Season 2, Season 3 will throw the spotlight on Red Velvet by Lolita Chakrabarti, Scenes with Girls by Mirriam Battye, A Very Expensive Poison by Lucy Prebble and many more.
Lexie Ward, co-founder of Script in Hand, says; “We’re excited to be back for our third season, covering another batch of diverse and interesting plays. We’re also delighted to reveal our brand new logo in conjunction with our new series, by designer Eleanor Hibbert.
“We’re covering our usual mix of classic and contemporary texts, alongside well known and perhaps lesser known playwrights. It’s our pleasure to highlight plays our audiences may not have heard of before, and we’re really thrilled with the line up we’ve put together for this new season.”
Season 3 will also see an array of special guests grace the ‘podcast couch’ including artistic director of Theatre by the Lake Liz Stevenson, and writer Tabby Lamb, who will provide a backstage pass to the inner workings of her play Since U Been Gone.
