Grant O’Rourke


A well-known face of both stage and screen, Grant stopped by to chat with me about watching cancelled TV shows, the massive challenges of working a season at Pitlochry Festival Theatre, and of course his great skill at “doing nothing”! Join us for a wee blether. Thanks for your continued support.

Sarah Gray


This week it’s the turn of hugely prolific and highly sough-after producer, Sarah Gray, to sit across from me as we put it together. Of course, the first question on my lips and perhaps yours is, “what does a theatre producer actually do?” And from there we get into the nuts and bolts of it and chat away about shows we’ve loved, how programming and touring works, who’s who on the production team, and much much more. Thanks for listening!
