Episode 177,   May 15, 2021, 03:08 PM

Some chattage about the wonderful play Supposes by gorgeous George Gascoigne

Today we're discussing Supposes by George Gascoigne, a translation of an Italian play produced in 1566. It's super fun and worth performing today - we know this because it has been. Robert is joined by Sam Plumb, director of a production of the play from 2017, and actor Riana White, one of the cast. They discuss the language, the production, the different performance spaces and the wonders of Gascoigne.
