15 Minute Drama, previously known as Woman’s Hour Drama, is a BBC Radio 4 Arts and Drama production. It consists of 15-minute episodes, broadcast every weekday 10.45–11.00am (i.e. at the end of Woman’s Hour proper), repeated at 7.45–8.00pm. These tend to be plays which extend over a week, or multiple of five episodes. Occasionally, each day’s slot for a week or more will be filled by single drama, linked to the others of the week by a theme.

The subjects covered are many and varied, and not just for women. According to Radio 4, they aim to provide a mixture of classic and contemporary drama, adaptations of books and original writing.
