the power of audio drama to teach, to learn, to enjoy

SmartPass has one aim – to bring the power of drama into the classroom, the library, and the home – to present literature as alive, relevant, and entertaining! Our resources enable

Teachers to bring the stage into their classroom

Students to dive into drama on their iPods, disc players, PCs...

Everyman to renew or begin a relationship with great literature

Since 1999, SmartPass has brought passion to literature with casts of actors from the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, and the BBC radio repertory, presenting unabridged plays, poetry, and guided dramatisations of novels.

Whoever you are, SmartPass offers the closest thing to live theatre for teachers, students, or anyone who wants to understand and appreciate more about literature – all at the touch of a button!
