English Touring Theatre unveils series of audio work including Mike Bartlett piece
The hit play will be available from later today
English Touring Theatre have unveiled three audio pieces you can listen to now.
First up, Bertie Carvel stars in a new Mike Bartlett audio play Phoenix.
Carvel and Bartlett previously worked together on smash-hit TV series Doctor Foster, and will now reunite for English Touring Theatre as part of the nationwide "Signal Fires" scheme created by Headlong and ETT in partnership.
The piece is an exploration of Britain's relationship with its government. The show is available now via the ETT website and social media, and will also be released on iTunes and Spotify. The audio drama has sound design by Ben and Max Ringham.
Siana Bangura and Christina Nicole are hosting a podcast about the huge volume of work being done backstage by the likes of writers, directors, sound designers, producers, production managers, movement directors and voice and dialect coaches – each also having to contend with the uncertanty surrounding the pandemic.
As part of a boldly titled ''F**ked Up Bedtime Stories (For Adults), seven short stories written by Alissa Anne Jeun Yi, Dipo Baruwa-Etti, Tim Crouch, Vivienne Franzmann, Matilda Ibini, Amy Jephta and Anthony Neilson are being presented online – bringing together the familiar and fantastical in a mélange of theatre fun.
