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

JOYCE CAROL OATES Author

“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.”
