Based on the Gold Award-winning podcast for Best Entertainment at the British Podcast Awards, Gyles Brandreth and Susie Dent bring their infectious love of words to the stage with Something Rhymes with Purple LIVE.
Expect theatrical antics from the show’s affable hosts as they bring to the stage all the trademark repartee and wordplay of the podcast, segments including ‘Susie’s Trio’, Gyles’ poetry, the bizarre origins of sayings, lots of myth busting and a deep dive into the way that theatre has shaped our language and expressions. Each show will focus on a different theme within the world of words and will be recorded to make up special episodes of the podcast so that no two shows will be the same.
Uncover the hidden origins of language, understand how and why we use the words we use, enhance your vocabulary, and test your knowledge with two of the wittiest and finest wordsmiths.
