Podcast: The Makeshift Broadcast #3

Makeshift Broadcast is recording its next podcast at The Old Hairdresser’s on 19th May 2015 at 8pm.

It will be another evening of plays, poems, stories, music and everything in between. Join us for the live recording and be part of the applause!


Troon by Julie Tsang
directed by Elliot Roberts

Julie Martis as Beth
Gillian McCombe as Annabel
Jane Black as Jacqueline
John Love as Jim

The highlight of Julie’s career came when The Sorry Story of the Angel and the Bear was performed alongside writing by some of her favourite playwrights Alan Ayckbourn, J.P Donleavy, Athol Fugard and Patrick Marber. This encouraged Julie to continue her passion of writing for the stage. Her plays include Like this… (Tron Theatre), Angel/Bear for Mayfesto, Ragdolls with Reclaim the F Word (Tron Theatre), Look After Me (3 minute Theatre, Oran Mor) and Back to Me (Short Play Theatre, CCA). Julie’s play Troon was recently shortlisted for the Short Play Award at Cumbernauld Theatre.


Project Naked – an Audiobiography
from Megan Hood & Hannah Tait

Project Naked was started by two young women who were sick of only hearing the media’s narrative around women’s bodies, and wanted to hear what women really thought. For the past three years, they have been collecting women’s stories of their relationships with their bodies and publishing them on their blog. They have also recently started putting on live events which aim to promote women in the arts.

Project Naked would like to encourage you to donate what you can to Edinburgh Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre. Please donate here.
