The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 16 June 2011

Actor Robin Bowerman tells us about the new play by Philip Goulding that he is performing in at the Coliseum Theatre in Oldham, A Fine Bright Day Tomorrow. He also tells us a little bit about a residency with Alan Ayckbourn's company in Scarborough in the 1970s and about theatrical digs.

After last week's interview with director Elizabeth Newman, we bring you a review of her production of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton.

We also have a very brief look at this July's 24:7 Theatre Festival, including actor John Henshaw's introduction to this week's media launch of the festival.
