Here at thespyinthestalls.com, we now review almost sixty shows per month. There are alas many more shows that we don’t get to review as we simply just don’t have enough reviewers. We are always in need of more people to join our reviewing team.
The role is voluntary and we are unable to pay any expenses, but you do get the chance to see a wide variety of shows on a press ticket. We always need additional reviewers for the London area but we are also keen to hear from people anywhere in the country as we do get requests nationwide and we are slowly expanding our coverage.
We currently (May 2019) are especially interested in reviewers in the following areas:
Edinburgh (to cover Fringe)
Reviewers covering London will normally need to be able to cover at least two shows per month on average.
You need to be reliable with a passion for theatre and have good creative use of English. You may be covering shows based on your availability so you must be prepared to attend all types of production. Writing reviews can be challenging and you will need to be able to adhere to deadlines.
If you would like to apply, please contact us with:
a short bit of information about yourself and why you are interested in reviewing
your location (if London, please state which area)
your own review for a show – this should be no less than 300 words and no more than 500 – the show can be for any live theatrical performance you have seen within the last twelve months
reviews should be in the body of the email or as a Word attachment only – please do not send any links to websites or reviews in any other format
Send the above to us at
If you know anyone else who might be interested then please do forward our details on to them.
If you would just like further information at this stage, please contact us on the same email address – Thanks!
