Speech Share developed organically following the Q&A sessions that we regularly run as part of our Speech Surgery monthly events.

As the conversations on these London-based panels were honest, informative and uplifting it was a natural progression to make a podcast recording these actors' anecdotes, advice and lives outside their jobs to share with people across the country.


Speech Share is hosted by The Mono Box's co-directors, Polly Bennett and Joan Iyiola. They 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 step out of the booth and leave their guest to deliver their favourite monologue - their very own Speech Share.


The podcasts are no more than 30 minutes in length, and each episode is a unique insight to the artist.
