A three-part webinar series for directors, actors and writers beginning to work in audio drama. We will cover the basic techniques and technical considerations needed by practitioners finding a creative articulation in audio production.
The dates and titles of each session are:
Introduction to audio drama and voiceover recording techniques - Monday 13th July
Introduction to basic editing for audio drama and voiceover – Monday 20th July
The future of audio drama – an introduction to binaural and ambisonic storytelling – Monday 27th July
Sign-up via the Eventbrite page is essential for attendance as there is a limited number of attendees for these sessions. Notes for the session will be available upon sign-up.
Each session will build on ideas covered in previous sessions, so attending all three sessions is advised but not compulsory. The sessions will be delivered over Zoom by sound designer and sound artist Matthew Tuckey, who’s work includes the recent audio drama series 24 Hours in Isolation (co-produced with Ben Dickenson and Sky Hawkins), Wolf (Kitchen Zoo in association with Northern Stage), Relentless (Mortal Fools), Trolley Boy (Alphabetti Theatre) and Associate Sound Designer for A Christmas Carol (Northern Stage).
These webinars are produced in association with Mortal Fools and supported by Alphabetti Theatre, NOVO, and Northern Stage. This workshop series was made possible by Arts Council England Emergency Response Funds for Individuals.

We tend to program in 3 – 6 month cycle.
We pride ourselves on being approachable, so drop us an email and let’s start chatting. We are interested in programming new and original work across the performing arts; however, if you’ve got an idea that doesn’t quite sit in that section, please do still get in contact – we can either help with introducing you to the right person or you can sell it to us! Please note we do not programme amateur dramatics - it has an essential position in the ecology of performing arts, but unfortunately that position is not with us.
We are ultimately interested in creating relationships with artists and companies, to enable us to build a community and a network. We don’t really fancy being a one night stand. We prefer to be part of the project from the start working with you to support funding applications, creation and audiences. Alphabetti believes in being a socioeconomically accessible venue so we want as many productions as possible to be part of our Pay What You Feel ticketing scheme. Due to Alphabetti’s size, we are unable to offer guarantees. We tend to offer box office splits always weighted towards the artists – we only on extenuating circumstances and very, very rarely will charge a hire.
If you want to be programmed, send a production pack to the email below. We will take every production pack to our monthly programming meetings. Please also invite us to see your work, and/or include recordings or the script of your work. If you still haven’t had a reply within a month or two, please feel free to give us cheeky nudge via calling the theatre or better still come into the venue.
