Shakespeare Republic creator/Director, Sally McLean and Executive Producer/Ensemble member, Billy Smedley were delighted to be invited into studio to be interviewed by the lovely Samantha and Gordon Napier on their wide-ranging Arts and Screen show, Book, Stage & Screen on WYN FM on February 16.

Dealing with everything from how do we select the pieces, to the Shakespeare authorship question, to the history of the Elizabethan playwrights, to what can go wrong on set when filming, this interview became so epic (at 45 minutes long), that it became a two-parter!  Both of which are available below from the Book, Stage & Screen YouTube Channel for your catch up listening enjoyment.

Huge thanks to Samantha and Gordon for inviting us onto their show and for their insightful questions and fun banter.  We had a ball and very much enjoyed our time on air with you both!
