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 #9 | Drag on wheels with Birds of Paradise

In the latest episode of Festival City, host Gareth K Vile is joined by the Birds of Paradise theatre company. Actors Robert Softley Gale (also writer), Garry Robson, Kinny Gardner and Amelia Cavallo (also musical director) discuss their new show, Blanche & Butch, a new production inspired by Noel Greig's 2006 play Heels on Wheelz, catching us up with three disabled drag queens ten years later. As well as chatting about the production, the conversation touches on accessibility and where drag sits between cabaret and theatre today. Blanche & Butch is touring now.Credits:
