We finished recording the second series of our radio comedy A Trespassers Guide to the Classics a few weeks ago. The new shows go out on BBC Radio 4 on March 10, 17, 24, 31 March at 11.30am.
“Ingenious in its simplicity, a return of the series that sees the comedy trio Peepolykus assume the roles of minor characters in great works of fiction and derail the plot of the book through their hapless buffoonery”. BBC WEBSITE.
Series 2 sees the trio venture into the world of Shakespeare’s Macbeth (where the witches prophecy gets given to Javier), Bram Stoker’s Dracula (where John becomes convinced that Dracula is a stunt created by Houdini), Edmond Roseanne’s Cyrano de Bergerac (where Richard convinces Cyrano to get a nose job) and Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard (where Javier buys the orchard).
Trespassers sees us working again with long time associate Mr Richard Katz (we made him wear some dreadful pants and a wig in Spyski) who is currently touring with Complicite in The Encounter. Our brilliant Trespassers cast also features Hattie Morahan (off Outnumbered) and David Sterne (the genius Farmer Bishop in The Detectorists). We had a blast! Pictured here are (L to R): Richard Katz, Hattie Morahan, Javier and Emma Harding.
In other news, Javier makes a return as the body of Paddington Bear in Paddington 2. Paddington is animated, see, so Javier does all the bear’s movement.
John has just finished working with circus performers Gemma Palomar and Jose Triguero on their new show Cul de Sac opening at Jackson’s Lane in London on 24th Feb:
And he has just started working with the force of energy and delightful lunacy that is Le Nave Bete. John directs the Betes new show, ‘Dracula: The Bloody Truth’. Here’s the tour dates and pics and all that right here They are, like, proper funny, and a joy to work with.
