JST Conversations

Every good play starts a conversation. We're delighted to lanch JST Conversations - a wide-ranging series of debates, discussions, talkbacks, interviews and more.

Our new pre-show debates take place at 6.00pm and last 45 minutes, with guest speakers, audience questions and plenty of food for thought. Entry is free to ticket-holders for any performance of the relevant production.
