Got views on the FIFA corruption scandal? London's housing disaster? Whether or not protest scenes like these do any good? Of course you do: you're an intelligent, informed human being who is up to date with the world. So you'll no doubt be interested in a series of debates with journalists, comedians, politicians and campaigners.

Put together by the Guardian newspaper and National Theatre, five events will cover football, feminism, housing, technology and the economy and protest. Speakers include Bridget Christie (whom we interviewed here), Sol Campbell, Emily Maitlis, film director Beeban Kidron, Owen Jones and MPs Stella Creasy, Caroline Lucas and David Lammy.

Each event is tied into one of the National's current productions (the feminism debate is linked up with Jane Eyre, for example), so if you're booked in to see a show these talks can offer extra depth. Or you can just go along for the verbal fireworks.

The Guardian + National Theatre Debates run 28, 30 November, 9, 10 and 16 December at the National Theatre, South Bank SE1 9PX. Tickets cost £15/£12 members. Book either via the National Theatre or Guardian websites.
