Puppet Animation Scotland's manipulate opens for a week of exciting experimental theatre
Festival City returns for its first episode of 2018 as intrepid host Gareth K Vile catches up with a trifecta of interviews, headlined by the upcoming manipulate festival. His first guests are Artistic Director Simon Hart and Puppet Animation Scotland's Projects Manager, Melanie Purdie. The three discuss some of their festival highlights and get excited about the 'biggest concentration of experimental theatre outside of the Fringe'. Next up, well known for their TV acting on Emmerdale and Coronation Street respectably, John Middleton and Chris Harper come in for a chat about their stage adaptation of Strangers on a Train. And Gareth's final guest of the pod is Ewan Downie of Company of Wolves, as the two talk physical theatre and his new show Achilles.
