WORDTheatre is your live access to performances of the world’s best short stories, told by the world’s best actors, writers, and musicians. Step into the story with our live literary events in LA, NY, and London, our weekly podcast, and online everywhere.

“It was a very moving evening, it was just overwhelming to hear that, very touching, beautifully read, especially that last story…”


“In the beginning was the Word and the Word became WORDTheatre!

For nearly two decades, this organisation has made a considerable contribution to the culture of the written and the spoken word at an extraordinarily high level. I’ve been lucky, both as an actor and a writer, to contribute to the spread of the WORDTheatre experience and to have brought valued friends to the party.”
