Something Rhymes with Purple

Featuring Gyles Brandreth and Susie Dent

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.

    Two lovely and articulate presenters. Great ‘ad-lobbing’ - the show moved along smoothly. Great that Susie and Giles spent so much time with the audience in the interval.
