Show Notes

PTC's holiday show for 2019 is "The Play That Goes Wrong" by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields. It's a demanding physical comedy with a lot that goes wrong—as the title implies. For this episode, actors William Connell (Chris) and Ruth Pferdehirt (Sandra) talk about the rigors of comedy—timing, pacing, "riding the wave," and more. They also share their stories of other moments in plays gone wrong…. 

The outro music is by Trev Lewis/Hagfilms.
