The DS 'T'

The DS ‘T’ is an official collaboration between Purple Radio and Durham Student Theatre. Hosts Matthew Redmond and Issy Flower, who have both been involved in over 15 shows at Durham, take the time to bring the latest news, opinions and jokes from the stage to the web.

This week’s opening episode is the DDF special, wherein our intrepid hosts each interview writers for the upcoming Durham Drama Festival. If you are interested in seeing any of the plays talked about in this week’s episode, please check out the DDF facebook page here:

We unfortunately were not able to interview 3 of the writers for the DDF General Programme. Therefore, we’ve decided to link their director’s notes which have been published on the DST Website:

He Never Married by Kane Taylor

The death of a mysterious relative causes Sam to consider their own place in the world, finding their lives to be more alike than they’d ever imagined. Through the letters sequestered amongst their late uncle’s possessions, the tapestry of a difficult but well-lived life slowly unravels — and the fragility of all that’s been achieved becomes increasingly clear.

Lungbarrow's Insomnia by Aidas Zvirblis

Carrie Clyde cannot fall asleep. As the world outside slumbers, Carrie’s technicolour thoughts invade her room, filling the night with her fantasies and dreams, with the figments of those she loves and hates, as she spirals further into the depths of truths she’d rather keep hidden. And through it all, the power of a memory and a single word: Lungbarrow.

Laika by Aliya Gilmore

“There are no wolves in space, only men” Based on the true story of Sputnik, LAIKA follows the story of a dog in a spaceship sent to orbit the earth, and the people that put her there.
