How To Do Theatre wouldn’t be possible without the work of our dedicated team of writers and editors who work tirelessly to bring you the best quality content in an attempt to enrich your theatrical lives. It’d be a shame to let that work go unnoticed so here’s a chance for us to put faces to the names.
