We are taking what resources we have to get back to an activity we love: theatre. Each episode is a different production with a new creative team bringing literature to life.

Help us keep the audio experience rolling!

About the Podcast

The pandemic has made us realize that the way we do theatre needs to be more accessible and varied. We missed working on productions so much that we found a way to do it virtually! The idea for Play On Words originated from a group of theatre enthusiasts in Pittsburgh, PA. We took what resources we have to get back to an activity we love: theatre. Each episode involves a new creative team bringing different pieces of literature to life. Some of it is new content written specifically for the podcast, others are short classics with their own audio twist. Whatever you expect, let the power of words and your imagination sweep you away.
