Guest Reviewer Programme Application

At Theatre Weekly we want our reviews to reflect what audiences can actually expect when they see a show, that means we’re looking for a diverse group of people to see a wide range of productions.  Even if you’ve never reviewed professionally, your opinion matters to us, and to our readers.

The majority of our reviews are in London, but we’re also looking for reviewers in other parts of the country to support regional theatres, and with the increase in online productions there are more opportunities than ever for reviewers outside of London.

You’ll need to accept our terms and conditions in order to apply, and you’ll need to commit to picking up reviews regularly.  We have high standards and all reviews are checked by an editor before publication. We’re happy to offer feedback if requested.

As a guest reviewer for Theatre Weekly, you’ll have the opportunity to see a wide range of theatre (without having to buy tickets), to have your work published, to support emerging theatre and artists, and to give your opinion to potential audience members.

If you love theatre, have an eye for detail and strong writing skills, we want to hear from you.
