FT journalists to bring unforgettable stories to life in live theatre performance

On 9 April, leading FT journalists will perform to a live theatre audience at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in central London.

In collaboration with Live Magazine, and curated by the FT, an editorial cast of well known columnists and exciting young journalists will perform pieces of original content, adapted for the stage. Featuring a mix of reporting and commentary, live music and multimedia, the stories will cover a diverse range of topics - from the fall of oligarchs to the Oxford rivalries of famous politicians.

FT’s head of audience engagement Renée Kaplan said: “We are always looking at ways to deepen engagement with our readers, and have been developing new forms of storytelling at the FT for some time. This event is an opportunity to bring the human face of the FT to a live audience, and for viewers to experience original, poignant and humorous tales in a unique, theatrical setting.”

The cast includes award-winning FT commentators and reporters: Robert Shrimsley, Miranda Green, Roula Khalaf, Claer Barrett, Simon Kuper, Tom Burgis, Madhumita Murgia, India Ross, John Burn-Murdoch, Charlie Bibby and the artist behind famed FT illustrations, James Ferguson.

The performance will be held at Milton Court, Guildhall School of Music & Drama at 7pm on Tuesday 9 April. Further information can be found here.
