During the Interval with Bea Udale-Smith | Pigfoot Theatre

First off we are joined by Bea Udale-Smith of environmental Theatre Company Pigfoot.

An interesting insight into the industry
A great first episode ! I learned so much about the industry that I had no idea about it. Any fans of Mischief Theatre will love this episode. Even if you’re not, it’s so interesting to hear the ins and outs of working on the West End and Broadway.
