Northern Stage launches first podcast The Northern Stage Theatre Podcast is the official podcast of Northern Stage, an inspirational and creative theatre based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Check back for an assortment of interviews, stories, theatre-related chat and more with theatre-makers, artists, and creatives. In the first episode, Northern Stage's Associate Director's Mark Calvert and Louie Ingham chat to Curious Monkey's Director Amy Golding about 'HERE', a powerful new play about finding sanctuary in the unlikeliest of places. Due to government advice in response to the COVID-19 epidemic in March, the show never went ahead at Northern Stage as all public performances were suspended at Northern Stage. This podcast is being launched on the day where ordinarily, we would be holding a post-show discussion with Amy so instead, we’ve woven it together into this forty-five-minute podcast, including beautiful music from the show by composer, Niroshini Thambar. Join us as we get to know who Curious Monkey are, what their new show is about, and the impact of the show not going ahead due to the COVID-19 suspension. The interview was recorded at Northern Stage on 19 March 2020, one hour before the building was closed due to the COVID-19 emergency. You can listen to the full podcast here.
