Short Plays for Short Journeys

Podcast subscribers who enjoy listening to drama now have access to a brand new drama series: Short Plays for Short Journeys.

This new podcast, created by Wild Duck Productions of the award-winning Wild Duck Theatre, showcases talented but unheard playwrights. Season one consists of four diverse plays including Brothers, by Matthew Huntington, a witty family drama with a sequel in Season Two due out in early 2021.

The podcasts have been launched as a way to share, on new platforms, the professional work of this company led by Creative Director Susan Conte.

Each episode has a different storyline and style, exploring the nature of the human condition and each runs between eleven and nineteen minutes. Brothers, for example, delicately yet with great humour, explores the pain and shame of infertility.

Conte, whose recent work for Wild Duck includes “Things I know to be True” and sell-out success “King Charles III” commented, “With so many exceptional writers, we searched for ways to bring to life the work of these authors and combine their creativity with our company of talented actors and directors. “

Producer, Fleur de Henrie Pearce, continued, “During these uncertain times it’s a joy to bring some escapism to our patrons who are currently unable to attend stage productions.  Podcasts offer an immediate theatre experience and with the varied running times, the option to listen on the move or when you feel like escaping to another time is available to listeners.”

Season one is now live on major podcast platforms and is available to listen to here www.wildducktheatre.com/podcasts
