The Seagull podcast: the cast discusses snoring, comedy in Chekhov & finding a stuffed seagull

Podcast of our forthcoming production of The Seagull with the cast members. James Mackenzie-Thorpe the director talks through the process of choosing to put on The Seagull whilst the frantic search up and down the country for a stuffed seagull continues with James insisting he does not plan to stuff one.

The cast : Jen Cooper, Lucy Danser, Michael Eriera, Grace Hudson, Ben Kernow, James Mackenzie-Thorpe, Nick Maxwell, Patrick Osborne, James Rose, oh and me, Marysia Trembecka

James Rose and I then discuss Trigorin and Arkadina’s dramatic scene in Act III and his transformation from the beginning of the play and Act IV. I follow with a chat with Jen Cooper whose advice ‘when in doubt use gaffer’ worries me as we are still discussing the stuffed Seagull.

The podcast covers:
Michael Ereira on the physical restrictions of spending lots of time snoring.
Grace Hudson insisting her Nina does come from Argentina.
Lucy Danser’s vital character research on alcohol at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Nick Maxwell on being a lecherous doctor
Ben Kernow on playing Medvedenko as Richard III.
