This week, we have a slightly longer podcast than usual, but I found it incredibly hard to edit down the chat I had with the dynamic duo of Emily Bruni and Shaun Dooley, currently appearing in Lunch & The Bow of Ulysses, two one act plays by Stephen Berkoff showing at London’s Trafalgar Studios until the 5th of November.
Truth & The Bow of Ulysses
This week’s podcasts brings you face to face with two of the people that brought you one of last year’s most beautifully designed and performed shows. McQueen started out in London at the St James Theatre in Victoria, and following a successful run transferred to the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the West End.
Traditionally at Shakespeare's Globe in London, one would come to expect a nice little jig to send you skipping out of they foyer onto the South Bank. We take you backstage to visit Shakespeare's Globe's production of "Imogen" and reveal the joy behind their modern version which turns the idea of a jig on its head.
October 10, 2016 was Stage Managers Day, and this week we're taking you backstage to meet the guys that keep the shows going. Whether it's calling the show or making sure an actor goes on stage with the right wardrobe and props... if it wasn't for the stage management the show definitely would not go!

This week I return to the Hampstead Theatre, where we covered Mr Foote’s Other Leg last year, to bring you backstage to meet the company of “Labyrinth”. Labyrinth is Beth Steel’s new play about the Latin American Financial Crisis in the late 1970’s.
I talked to the company about their research into the financial machinations of big bank loans, and whether or not they thought we have learned anything from prior financial crises.
