The Blackshaw Arts Hour – Episode 67

In exciting time news, the Blackshaw Arts Hour will be moving slots on Wandsworth Radio – we’ll now be airing on Tuesdays at midnight (i.e. the midnight between Tues and Weds!).  We’re hoping to welcome new listeners amongst shift workers and insomniacs.

 

As always though, the show is available as a podcast to listen to, anytime you damn well please!

 

In this episode, Ellie and Matt are in the studio, and the following is jam-packed, and headed to your ear holes:

  • Review of Darren Aronofsky’s film, ‘Mother!’
  • The concluding convo about ‘Angels in America’ at the National (with Sinead!)
  • Excitement builds for this year’s Scare Slam, and we take a look back at last year’s terror extravaganza
  • Discussion of the current environment for female playwrights in London
  • Chat about other ladies in the theatre world (including the RSC’s upcoming all-female Director lineup, and the casting of a lady in the role of ‘Bobby’ in ‘Company’).

 

Come on in, the podcasting water is lovely…

The Blackshaw Arts Hour – Episode 56

For the first show back into 2017 Iasha is joined by Matt and a very new voice to the show, Sinead Burniston, a fellow Holloway graduate and theatre lover.

Matt reviews the Lego Batman film, we hark back to some old conversations from 2016 including a run down of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, how bad Suicide Squad was and Iasha talks musicals and lack of tap with Half a Sixpence.

Next show Matt’s reviewing Fifty Shades Darker, and if there is a show not to miss this year, it’s that one. So much awkward.

The Blackshaw Arts Hour – Episode 24

Join Iasha Matt and Vikki in the studio for a jam packed show of reviews, interviews and arts chat.

Matt reviews new Tom Hardy film Legend and we kick off interviews with the cast and crew of Blackshaw’s upcoming production of Staying Alive.

We hear from Ellie Pitkin the Director, Eleanor Burke who plays Jenn and Alexander Pankhurst playing the character of Jack. Helen Johnson talks to them about the challenges of putting on a show with such a complex subject at the heart of it.

Vikki talks in her Arts Thing Of The Week about the huge age gaps between women and men in film. Highlighting something that sometimes goes unnoticed (not by Buzzfeed though) this symposium on Gender in Media aims to enlighten the audience about the gender imbalance at the heart of the film industry.

Matt reviews Pomona, playing at the National up until the 10th of November, which is exactly the date that Staying Alive at the Pleasance starts! Tickets here
