Maureen Beattie

I was lucky enough to catch Maureen for a great hour of chat between her phenomenal success in The Ferryman in the West End and taking her role in Simon Stone’s Yerma off to New York. With a well-known Scottish variety comedian for a father, Maureen’s path was perhaps obvious from the start, and her journey has been every bit as fascinating as her father’s. We discuss Yerma, The Ferryman, the power of art and Maureen’s passion for her vital work with Equity. Thanks for listening!

Darren Connell tells me about his unlikely journey into the world of stand-up and acting for TV and theatre. Kick back and join us for a great hour of chat where we talk about our mutual admiration for the Marx Brothers, the funniest open audition on the show to date and being heckled by the DJ! Give us a like and share if you’re enjoying the show. Thanks for all your support and for listening!

Annie Grace

An original cast member of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart drops in to Pitpod for a wee chat and we hear all about Annie Grace’s five years on the road with Scotland’s best-known piece of gig-theatre. We also get to chatting about pipe bands and even lilt our way through a wee Irish reel later in the show! Thanks for grabbing this week’s episode. Please give us a rating on iTunes; it really helps get the show out to more people. Thanks for listening!

From Arabian Sultan to Lennox in “The Scottish Play”, it’s a good time to chat to Nicholas Karimi. This interview felt like the perfect way to round off a great Christmas season in Edinburgh. Join Nicholas and me as we talk method, Mamet and Macbeth. Thanks for all your feedback recently and for listening!
