    The Kiss

    The Kiss

    Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura defy orders from studio executives and become the first inter-racial couple to kiss on an American TV series. Recorded live at The Pleasance King Dome (fluffs and all!) as part of the Wireless Theatre ‘Couples Who Changed The World’ season at Edinburgh Festival 2014.
    “In a moment the wall between people of different skin colour began to crumble. Throughout the most powerful nation on the planet, people began to see what was important – just how much we fancy each other.
    Nichols later said that after that kiss was broadcast, the worst reaction they got was a letter from a man in the South which said Southern viewer, which said: “I am totally opposed to the mixing of the races. However, any time a red-blooded American boy like Captain Kirk gets a beautiful dame in his arms that looks like Uhura, he ain’t gonna fight it.” It’s quite sweet really. 
    So you have this radical act of people coming together, set against a backdrop of the assassination of Martin Luther King – a man who believed in peace and togetherness above all else. I thought it was an astonishing time and a fascinating subject for drama.” – Gareth Rubin
    Written by: Gareth Rubin, Directed by: David Beck
    Starring: Ishia Osbourne, Micheal Bodie, Adam Hall, Nina Millns, Brandon Carter
    Lighting and live SFX by: Gareth Brown, Live music written and perfomed by: Jacky Fong
    Editing and post production by: Malcolm Thorp

    Fascinating story well acted. You can definitely tell it’s recorded live as there are some mistakes and line crossovers, but that adds to the charm of the piece. Recommend.

    Turning the Tide

    Turning the Tide

    Ever since he was young, Larry has tried to avoid confrontation. Recently widowed, he tries to be a good father to his son Toby. When Toby is suspended from school for fighting a bully Larry faces a dilemma: how can he be a good father in Toby’s eyes if he doesn’t stand up for him? At the same time his work colleague Sarah faces constant harassment from her overbearing boss Robert. Which situation will make him fight back first, or will it be an untimely mix of the two?
    Starring: Stuart Sessions, Kiney Bailes, Ben Murray-Watson, David Cunningham, Robert Jales, Harriet Kershaw, Linda Large, Frederick Roll and Matt Kirby
    Written By: Gareth Brownbill
    Edited By: Joe Siddons
    Directed By: Fran Kirkham

    Turning the Tide was an effective piece that I enjoyed very much. Compelling all the way through. It was about something real that most of us go through at some point in our lives–dealing with people who bully us in one form or another, or who bully someone we know.

    The Ballad of C3.3

    The Ballad of C3.3

    Oscar Wilde was incarcerated in Reading after being convicted of homosexual offences in 1895 and sentenced to two years’ hard labour. During his imprisonment, he wrote the poem ‘The Ballad of Reading Gaol’ which was published by Leonard Smithers in 1898 under the name C.3.3 which stood for cell block C, landing 3, cell 3. This ensured that Wilde’s name – by then notorious – did not appear on the poem’s front cover. It was not commonly known, until the 7th printing in June 1899, that C.3.3 was actually Wilde.
