John Finnermore's Double Acts: Penguin Diplomacy

This week, Jake and Caleb are staging a radio play! John Finnermore's Double Acts are short comedy-drama two-handers written for Radio Four. Penguin Diplomacy, the story of a British and Danish diplomatic forming a bond as they argue the toss over a small island in the South Pacific, is the focus of this episode. We blast through everything from casting to costume to lighting to rewriting as we swiftly stage this neat two-hander.

Listen to the radio play here.
