JST Pre Show Debate

Every good play starts a conversation. We're delighted to bring you JST Pre Show Debate - a wide-ranging series of discussions, talkbacks, interviews and more.

Our next pre-show debate is on Wednesday 6th December at 5:45pm at Jermyn Street Theatre.

The discussion will last for approximately one hour, starting with a conversation with our panel, followed by audience questions and plenty of food for thought. Entry is free and you can reserve your seat by emailing boxoffice@jermynstreettheatre.co.uk


What do we gain by revisiting existing stories?

Charles Court Opera, the makers of Odyssey - A Heroic Pantomime, are well known for their ‘off-piste’ boutique pantos and 'irresistable' reinventions of existing works.

Why do we love to see existing stories return? To what extent does reinventing a story enrich us as audience members? Do we risk not creating our own classics?
