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 #7 | Morale remains high at the Fringe

In episode seven of Festival City, the writer-director of Morale is High (Since We Gave up Hope) Adrian Berry and host Gareth K Vile get in deep about David Bowie, fandom and obsession with music. Writer Jessica Barker-Wren and director Lucy Ray come in to discuss Cow and end up debating PJ Harvey's cultural importance and West Country accents. And Gareth's final interview of the episode is a fascinating discussion with Palestinian writer-performer Amer Hlehel about the poet Taha Muhammed Ali.Show Notes
