The New ERA. Episode one.
Here we have it, the new podcast from the grassroots organisation ERA 5050 who have been leading the conversation about gender imbalance on our stages and screens since 2015. This week we will be introducing you to the founders of the organisation, Polly Kemp, Karin Paynter and Deirdre Mullins with the full interview to come in 2 weeks time- so stay tuned for that. We also discuss making your own, female-led work with Actress and co-creator of hit TV show Harlots, Alison Newman, as well as hearing the fiery, impassioned audience responses to the hugely popular, show-of-the-moment Emilia, showing at the Vaudeville Theatre, West End until 1st June– there’s only a week left of the show so find a link below to tickets as it really is NOT TO BE MISSED!
