Listen back to the first series of our Interval Drinks podcast.

Interval Drinks launched in March 2021 when we brought together actors, writers, musicians and directors from the current company with the actors, writers, musicians and directors who have inspired them. The podcast addresses big and small questions, from how the artists got to where they are today, to what they like to drink in an interval, and who they would like to spend it with.

You can still listen to the first series of Interval Drinks with Tim Minchin, John Kani, Adjoa Andoh, Charlotte Arrowsmith, Justin Audibert, Paul Chahidi, Juliet Gilkes Romero, Kate DiCamillo, Lucian Msamati, David Threlfall and Sophie Woolley.

Grab your interval drink and get the chance to find out more about some of theatre's leading lights. Listen below or on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and other major podcast platforms. Search 'Interval Drinks RSC' to find us.
