In this edition of the podcast recorded over the 2021 vacation, we bring together representatives from University College London and Oxford University to discuss their respective classical plays, a rich university tradition for each which has been forced to adapt significantly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Interviewed by guest presenter Dr David Bullen (top left, himself a theatre producer working on the King's College London play since 2015), the teams discuss their ongoing projects and hopes for the future.
