At the Fringe # 4 | The Vaudevillains: murder at the Empire Theatre
James Seager, director of cabaret whodunnit The Vaudevillains, and a malcontent puppet called Fred join us in the studio
At the Fringe keeps going strong into episode 4, with James Seager from theatre company Les Enfants Terribles talking about their latest show, The Vaudevillains and sharing 15 years worth of Fringe memories, with host Gareth K Vile. Playwright and The List News Editor Rebecca Monks offers up her top tips, and, in a first for the podcast, the team behind Meet Fred bring some puppetry magic to the radio as Gareth meets his match in the form of a two-foot tall bunraku puppet. Musical interludes come from future guests Twist Theatre Company and their musical remake of Shakespeare's MacBeth.
