We explore inside the making of our Audio Drama, From Sad Shires and the historical event that inspired the Podcast. In this episode we talk to some of the actors from our Audio Drama: Darren Johnson, Jeremy Stroughair, Michelle Grant and Rebecca Little and discuss the Music Hall theme that runs through the play. Little Pixie Productions normally create and tour theatre, taking it out to local communities. Something which has proven rather difficult due to the live performing restrictions surrounding Covid-19. This Podcast is the result of our response to the restrictions imposed during the pandemic, creating a piece of new work but sharing it with an audience digitally instead of through live performance. Our Audio Drama was recorded remotely by the actors involved, using whatever equipment they had available and is available to listen to now. From Sad Shires music composed by Adam P McCready at Poetical Machines.

What a wonderful story. Great writing, acting and sound recording. Perfect storytelling. Grab a blanket and a hot cuppa, curl up on the sofa and let this podcast, take you back in time. Beautiful.
