Delve into a world of words with Something Rhymes with Purple on Stage based on Gyles Brandreth and Susie Dent’s award-winning podcast.


Expect theatrical antics from the show’s affable hosts as they bring their infectious love of words to the stage with all the trademark repartee and wordplay of the podcast.

Combining much-loved podcast segments including ‘Susie’s Trio’, Gyles’ poetry, the bizarre origins of sayings, lots of myth busting and a deep dive into our language and expressions, each show will focus on a different theme and will be recorded to make up special live episodes of the podcast.

Uncover the hidden origins of language, understand how and why we use the words we use, enhance your vocabulary, and test your knowledge with two of the wittiest and finest wordsmiths.

The show runs on Sun 25 Sep 2022, Sun 16 Oct 2022, Sun 20 Nov 2022, Sun 18 Dec 2022, Sun 15 Jan 2023, and Sun 19 Feb 2023 at The Fortune Theatre, Russell St, London, WC2B 5HH.
