Festival City Podcast

Festival City is a podcast from Edinburgh, the world capital of theatre and comedy, and home to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe — the largest arts festival in the world. Hosted by theatre editor and critic Gareth K Vile, we welcome guest performers, directors and writers into The List's attic recording studio to talk theatre, comedy, dance and anything else that takes our fancy. As well as sharing the world of the Edinburgh Fringe with our far-flung listeners, we’ll be talking to arts programmers and curators around the world about their own festivals and institutions.



Festival City #3 | Bunny Boiler seeks love

Episode three of Festival City stays in Glasgow (outrageous!), or at least meets a couple of artists who are either from or living on the West Coast. They are still, of course, at the Fringe during August.First up, there is more Vile conversations with the National Theatre of Scotland: this time, Graham Eatough dives into the problems of making theatre as he reveals the process behind How to Act. Musical interludes come from the new musical, The Local, featuring songs about that subject dear to all critics at the Fringe – the pub. Gareth then decides to 'indulge himself' by giving his opinions on what he wants to see, and goes on and on about clowns... before the show is rescued by the arrival of a comedian Rachel Jackson. Gareth asks her for some dating advice, even though she is a bit of a Bunny Boiler.Show Notes:
