The Stage Podcast: Seven Stages

The Stage Podcast, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016, part 5

July 13, 2018

In our fifth Edinburgh-specific podcast episode, Mark Thomas talks about his show The Red Shed at the Traverse Theatre, and how his work has increasingly moved from stand-up towards theatre in a bid to reflect the truth. He also talks about performance, journalism, audience participation and why he nearly voted Leave in the EU referendum.

Meanwhile, our critics pick some of their top shows. This week things take an immersive turn as Tim Bano and Paul Vale discuss the relative merits of an immersive musical, an immersive dance piece and one of Edinburgh's most talked-about immersive theatre shows, Counting Sheep.
