When the interval comes around to you discuss the show over a gin and tonic? A cup of tea? A glass of cool white wine? Or do you stick to water? How do the people who make theatre spend their intervals? And have they ever left halfway through a show?
We launch series two of the Interval Drinks podcast with star of stage and screen David Tennant in conversation with Mark Quartley, who currently plays Henry VI in the RSC productions of Henry VI: Rebellion and Wars of the Roses.
Later episodes include Sound Designer Claire Windsor chatting to composer and musician Femi Temowo about his musical journey, from first picking up a guitar at age 19, to becoming a MOBO Award nominated musician who composed the music for the RSC production of Much Ado About Nothing. And theatre director Tinuke Craig meets RSC director Aaron Parsons to explain what is similar about directing a Sarah Kane play about trauma and a pantomime.
