Nottingham Playhouse has launched a new podcast series that will explore the careers, processes and lockdown experiences of nationally and internationally renowned artists. 

The Playhouse’s existing podcast, Nottingham Playcast, offers behind-the-scenes glimpses of productions and projects at the theatre. However these episodes will form a new strand of this, in response to the recent global crisis.

Included is Olivier Award-winning actor and playwright David Haig, known for his stage plays My Boy Jack and The Good Samaritan (both for Hampstead Theatre) and Pressure (Royal Lyceum and Minerva Theatre). His distinguished acting career includes West End appearances such as in Yes, Prime Minister. He has also performed in Alan Ayckbourn’s House/Garden at the National Theatre and in Hitchcock Blonde at the Royal Court. His television appearances include My Boy Jack (ITV, starring David, Daniel Radcliffe and Kim Cattrall), Four Weddings and a Funeral and Crime and Punishment.

Director and writer Gbolahan Obiesesan also features in the first release of episodes. He is known by many for his critically acclaimed play The Fishermen, based on the Man Booker-nominated novel by Chigozie Obioma, which premiered at Manchester HOME before a UK tour. Other plays include Mad About the Boy, which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before a UK tour. He has also directed several plays, including The Last King of Scotland at Sheffield Crucible and Yvette at Bush Theatre.

Director Natalie Abrahmi’s illustrious career is also explored. Her career has spanned across the UK, serving as Artistic Director at the Gate Theatre, before joining the Young Vic as Geneisis Fellow and Associate Director. She has also been Associate Artist at the Nuffield Theatre and Hull Truck. She has directed ANNA at the National Theatre, Wings at the Young Vic, Queen Anne at the RSC and The Eleventh Capital for Royal Court. Her production of The Kreutzer Sonata at Gate Theatre later transferred to New York. Film credits include Mayday and Life’s a Pitch.

These will be followed by weekly episode releases with other artists including Adam Penford (Nottingham Playhouse’s Artistic Director), Jeremy Herrin, Maria Aberg, Nick Bagnall, Sam Hodges, Tim Sheader, Nikolai Foster, Luke Barnes, Davina Moss and Amit Sharma.
