Thompson’s Live: Episode 6 (3rd December 2012)

December 4th, 2012

So all too soon we've reached the last of this present series of podcasts from Chris Goode & Company, focusing on theatre and performance, poetry and music, arts and ideas.

The conversation this time is even longer than usual, and yet as ever there's so much more that could have been said: particularly as, unusually, we had a single topic to focus on: namely, the current state of writing for (and not for) theatre.

The three brilliant guests who joined us to think through some of the questions around this strangely fraught territory were:

Chris Campbell, Literary Manager, Royal Court Theatre

Dan Rebellato, Professor of Contemporary Theatre, Royal Holloway University of London

Francesca Lisette, poet

There's also an amazing, longer-than-usual set from Francesca at the end, which you won't want to miss.

There'll be one more episode before the end of the year -- a kind of Christmas bonus, not recorded at STK and not taped before an audience, but still full of big ideas and good conversation -- which should come out around December 18th.

In the meantime, thanks to everyone at the Airport, everyone's who's come along to listen and contribute, and above all our eighteen fantastic guests.
