She Wants a Dog
She Wants A Dog is a partnership between Pippa Frith and Kate Chapman focused on commissioning artists and producing original creative work specifically for podcast, and working with theatre artists to create and curate discussion-based podcasts series exploring questions and topics which are important to them and their work.
'The audio space of the podcast is ripe for artist interpretations, ideas and voices. It’s another way to reach audiences who may or may not engage with their live work. We’re very happy to be working with some great theatres and to have had support from Arts Council England to make these pilot series possible.'
