My guest this week is prolific actor and director, Alison Peebles. We talk about her journey from art school to stage management to finally beginning to act in regional tours. We also have a chat about Alison’s MS and how it has affected her life and work. A joyous hour with an endlessly fascinating woman. Thanks for listening and sharing the show. Keep it going, pals!

David Mara

My guest this week is the tremendous, warm and funny David Mara. You might have seen him in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time in London’s West End or one of the many large-scale pieces he’s been involved in at both the National Theatre of Great Britain and the National Theatre of Scotland. I grabbed a free moment on his last trip to Scotland to ask him about where his love of theatre began and to hear all about the art of understudying. Thanks for listening!

How does one wee change of heart about football turn into a decades-long career in TV, film and theatre? Join Colin McCredie and me as we find out. Colin starred in Taggart for 15 years and originated the role of Brian in Passing Places, and he joined me in the studio to talk about those and many other projects. Thanks for listening, sharing, subscribing, the whole bit!
