Play for Voices is a podcast of international audio drama. Our show presents new productions of contemporary and classic audio plays from around the world, exploring their aesthetic, social, and political contexts through inventive, multilingual sound design and supplemental interviews with authors, translators, and other interesting people. We produce English-language plays and plays in English translation.
Audio drama is a highly flexible dramatic form that encourages experimentation and encompasses narrative, lyric, serials, and standalone plays of varying lengths. Inspired by the resurgence of audio storytelling in the United States, Play for Voices aims to build an inclusive audience of listeners for international audio drama, and to promote dialogue among the literary, theater, and audio art communities through our productions and occasional live events.
