The Wicker Man (1973)

This week we're joined by fellow podcasters Nancy Netherwood and Sam Webber from the Play Ground Theatre Podcast to discuss staging The Wicker Man (1973). Things get weird as we take on this folk-horror-musical-cult-classic that stars Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee and Britt Ekland. The film follows puritan Police Sergeant Howie from mainland Scotland as he arrives on a strange island to investigate the disappearance, and possible murder, of a young girl. It's May Day on this pagan isle and Sergeant Howie's case heats up as he faces down The Wicker Man. We talk the possibility of this show as an immersive, touring, outdoor musical, with community actor-musicians, and using the setting of heritage sites.

Jaws

This week we're joined by host of the podcast 'I Saw That Years Ago', Martyn Darkly to stage the original blockbuster, Steven Spielberg's iconic Jaws. We discuss Jaws as action-theatre, ballet, and even a drive-in cinema on the side of a cliff only accessible by boat that could tangentially be called theatre if you really wanted it to.

Midnight in Paris

Midnight in Paris: The Musical!This week we're joined by our first married couple, Producer Radha Mamidipudi and Musical Director and Composer Alex Beetschen to chat about the Owen Wilson vehicle Midnight in Paris. The film follows a successful screenwriter trying to make the change to novelist as he enjoys a break in Paris with his fiancée and her disapproving parents. He dreams of Paris in the 1920s until, by a bizarre stroke of luck, he is transported there each night to meet his literary heroes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein and many more. We quickly decide the best route for this on stage is as a musical and we get to talking about the opulence of the 1920s, dual casting, and making the most of the musical genre.You can find Radha and Alex on Twitter @radhakka and @alexbeetschen respectively.Don't forget to rate the podcast in app and get in contact if you have any thoughts about our staging.

Nanny McPhee

This week we're joined by director Issy Paul to discuss the 2005 family comedy fantasy Nanny McPhee.

The Social Network

This week we take a look at the Fincher-Sorkin collaboration, The Social Network. The film charts the rise of Mark Zuckerberg as he creates the most popular social network platform ever. As we talk staging, we discuss potential multi-part sequels, using framing devices onstage, reimagining film for the theatre space rather than recreating it, and how best to utilise the incredible score that this film boasts. You can find the Average Blokes show on Instagram and YouTube and you can find Joshua Clarke on Instagram @therealjoshclarke.Don't forget to rate the podcast in app and get in contact if you have any thoughts about our staging. Would you want to potentially shift the protagonist focus away from Zuckerberg? What would you like to see in a multi-part play that includes a sequel?

The Invisible Man (2020)

We're back from our winter break (and sketch show break, which you can still listen to here), and we are joined by Northern Broadsides Producer Eve Stollery to discuss The Invisible Man (2020) Written and directed by Leigh Whannell, and loosely based on the novel of the same name by H. G. Wells. It follows a woman who believes she is being stalked and gaslit by her abusive and wealthy boyfriend even after his apparent suicide, and ultimately deduces that he has acquired the ability to become invisible. The film stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. It was originally supposed to be part of the shelved Universal Monsters Shared Universe. If you enjoyed the episode then please share it around, and let us know what you thought! Can an invisible man be effectively made on stage? How do we build horror and suspense effectively? Why have there been few horror plays other than the Woman In Black?
