This week we're joined by actor, member of sketch comedy group Quirks and Foibles, and recently announced host of the Chichester Free Fringe, Katie Bennett! And it's a doozie, because we discuss staging Inside No. 9 Episode 'The Trial of Elizabeth Gadge'! We wax lyrical about the show we're all huge fans of, talk about how we'd stage the series in general, and then dive into the episode, in which two of England's most notorious and feared witch-finders are summoned by Sir Andrew Pike to the unassuming village of Little Happens in order to try a defenceless old woman.... but as always, there's a twist! We talk about creative ways to do a costume change, reviving repatory theatre, and the place of the audience in a trial play.You can find Quirks and Foibles by searching for them on youtube, or hit up their socials @quirksandfoiblessketch on insta and @quirks_foibles on twitter.Katie is on Twitter @katiefbennettDon't forget to rate the podcast in app and get in contact if you have any thoughts about our staging.

The Wicker Man (1973)

2021-04-2701:00:54

This week we're joined by fellow podcasters Nancy Netherwood and Sam Webber from the Play Ground Theatre Podcast to discuss staging The Wicker Man (1973). Things get weird as we take on this folk-horror-musical-cult-classic that stars Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee and Britt Ekland. The film follows puritan Police Sergeant Howie from mainland Scotland as he arrives on a strange island to investigate the disappearance, and possible murder, of a young girl. It's May Day on this pagan isle and Sergeant Howie's case heats up as he faces down The Wicker Man. We talk the possibility of this show as an immersive, touring, outdoor musical, with community actor-musicians, and using the setting of heritage sites. May contain nudity.You can find the 'Play Ground Theatre Podcast' on twitter @playgroundpoddy or listen to them wherever you get your podcasts.Nancy is on Twitter @N_Netherwood and Sam is now on Twitter @SamWebberCoolDon't forget to rate the podcast in app and get in contact if you have any thoughts about our staging.
