Join The Mono Box for SPEECH SHARE: LIVE, a live podcast recording hosted by The Mono Box's co-founders Joan Iyiola and Polly Bennett.
Joan and Polly talk to some of the nation's most admired actors about their journeys into the profession, how their career has developed and a stand out play or production that they have been involved in. At the end Polly and Joan will leave the stage for their guest to deliver their favourite monologue - their very own Speech Share. Each live event will also be recorded as a podcast. Think Desert Island Discs, but for actors and live! You can listen to previous episodes of the podcast here.
