David Spicer is a writer and, more recently, playwright. With a world premiere production of his latest play "Raising Martha" opening at The Park Theatre in Finsbury Park London, I wanted to chat to David to get his take on the whole process.  I have known about this play for a long time, and have seen it workshopped, optioned, workshopped again...So it's great to see it finally get a home, and with a spectacular cast.

 

Listen, as David takes us from radio hit Week Ending to Game Shows to West End - an incredible journey!

This week's guest is a name you don’t often hear associated with the mega musical Miss Saigon, but he played a huge part in its success. Richard Matlby Jr, is a Broadway stalwart, winning a Tony Award way back in 1978 for Ain’t Misbehavin’. He went on to gather 10 Tony nominations, 4 Drama Desk nominations and he even bagged himself an Olivier award in 2001 for Directing Fosse.

 

The track you hear on this episode is "Be My Girl" sung by Jim Dale.

For the last few weeks, rumours of a Downton Abbey movie inching toward becoming a reality have been hitting the entertainment bulletins and pages around the world, so I thought I would take you backstage to meet a couple of the characters you loved on screen, Lady Edith and Lady Sybil. We are so used to seeing Laura Carmichael and Jessica Brown Findlay on screen in period dress, that seeing them on stage in modern dress packs an even more powerful punch.

This week, we return to The Donmar Warehouse and 2015's production of "Temple". "Temple" was directed by Howard Davies, who passed away on October 25th, 2016.  He leaves behind an incredible body of work and will be much missed by the theatre world.  He was beloved by the companies he put together in five decades of work.

 

The cast of "Temple" acclaim their love of the Donmar, and it is apparent that Davies triumphed again in putting together a company that adored each other. On stage and backstage.
