Get up to speed about the Lord Mayor's Show 1621

A special discussing episode with Professor Tracey Hill, covering our upcoming reconstruction of Thomas Middleton's 1621 Lord Mayor's Show - The Sun in Aries. We discuss civic pageantry in general, the 1621 show specifically, and throw a little light onto what's to come.
With on site rehearsal recordings of the cast and crew as we tested acoustics and generally walked through the show - including Liza Graham, Aliki Chapple and Alexandra Kataigida. Possibly some others, but they're really quiet.

The host was Robert Crighton.

There's all sorts of info about the show on our website -
