Discussing: The Devil is an Ass by Ben Jonson

Episode 174,   Feb 04, 2021, 09:02 AM

The Devil is an Ass, and minor demons are even worse...

Today we're discussing The Devil is an Ass by Ben Jonson, that has just received the full cast audio adaptation treatment by The Lords of Misrule, an amateur dramatics society based at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of York. Forced by lockdown to go online, their live performances have gone digital. Robert is joined by Nic Peard, co-director and editor of the production, and producer Ross McIntire, to discuss the play, the production, and future plans for more shows.
