We talk about creative ways to do a costume change, reviving repatory theatre, and the place of the audience in a trial play.You can find Quirks and Foibles by searching for them on youtube, or hit up their socials @quirksandfoiblessketch on insta and @quirks_foibles on twitter.Katie is on Twitter @katiefbennettDon't forget to rate the podcast in app and get in contact if you have any thoughts about our staging.

Midnight in Paris: The Musical!This week we're joined by our first married couple, Producer Radha Mamidipudi and Musical Director and Composer Alex Beetschen to chat about the Owen Wilson vehicle Midnight in Paris. The film follows a successful screenwriter trying to make the change to novelist as he enjoys a break in Paris with his fiancée and her disapproving parents. He dreams of Paris in the 1920s until, by a bizarre stroke of luck, he is transported there each night to meet his literary heroes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein and many more. We quickly decide the best route for this on stage is as a musical and we get to talking about the opulence of the 1920s, dual casting, and making the most of the musical genre.You can find Radha and Alex on Twitter @radhakka and @alexbeetschen respectively.Don't forget to rate the podcast in app and get in contact if you have any thoughts about our staging.

We're back from our winter break (and sketch show break, which you can still listen to here), and we are joined by Northern Broadsides Producer Eve Stollery to discuss The Invisible Man (2020) Written and directed by Leigh Whannell, and loosely based on the novel of the same name by H. G. Wells. It follows a woman who believes she is being stalked and gaslit by her abusive and wealthy boyfriend even after his apparent suicide, and ultimately deduces that he has acquired the ability to become invisible. The film stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. It was originally supposed to be part of the shelved Universal Monsters Shared Universe. If you enjoyed the episode then please share it around, and let us know what you thought! Can an invisible man be effectively made on stage? How do we build horror and suspense effectively? Why have there been few horror plays other than the Woman In Black?

This week we're joined by Cesca Echlin and we're doing something a bit different. Infamously, Boris Johnson's chief political advisor Dominic Cummings broke lockdown rules to drive his wife and son to a cottage in the grounds of his parents house in Durham. He subsequently broke the rules further with an eye-sight-testing trip to Barnard Castle. A month later, he was caught out by the media and sat down for a press conference in 10 Downing Street's rose garden. That press conference is what Cesca has brought us to stage. We dig further into writing a piece around a true-story for the stage, as well as the usual discussions around space, music, casts and more.Read up more on the story around the press conference here.Let us know what you thought of the episode on social media or email in.Twitter/Instagram: @maybeulikeitFacebook: @maybeyoulikeitEmail: info@maybeyoulikeit.co.ukCaleb is on twitter, instagram and letterboxd @caleblebsterJake is on twitter and letterboxd @jakereeshCesca is on twitter @cescagathFind out more about us at https://www.maybeyoulikeit.co.ukMusic is from Kavana CrossleyMaybe You Like It, Maybe You Don't See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This week we're joined by writer and language expert Anna Myrmus to add a NINETEENTH adaptation to the Guinness World Record holder for most adapted film of all time: Perfect Strangers, AKA Intimate Strangers, AKA Nothing to hide, AKA Le Jeu, AKA Stranger in My Pocket, AKA Loud Connection, AKA Unknown Subscriber, and the list goes on!!A group of old friends and their partners meet up one evening for a dinner party hosted by Marie and Vincent. A rare lunar eclipse is also expected to occur on the same evening. At the dinner table, after hearing of Ben's questionably humorous story of a woman who found out about her husband's extramarital affairs only upon his death at the hospital after looking through the messages on his unlocked mobile phone, the group then starts discussing their phone lock settings and sharing information on their phones with their partners. To spice up the dinner, Marie then suggests a game where everyone surrenders their phones to the centre of the table and any messages, emails, or calls received on anyone's phone would have to be shared with everyone else. As the game progresses, more secrets begin to unravel, putting doubts on their friendships and marriages.We discuss how this film is already pretty much an Ayckbourn play, but how we'd add a few gimmicks, and change the odd bizarre ending...

This week we're joined by Elspeth Barron (again!) to discuss the perpetually tear-jerking Pixar film, Inside Out.Inside Out follows 11-year-old Riley as she navigates the challenge of moving from Minnesota to San Francisco. We see her emotions, in her mind, as they try to keep control of the situation and keep Riley joyful! The film is directed by Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen, and it stars Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith, Richard Kind, and Lewis Black.Our staging takes its cues from the tradition of Pantomime, working with high-tech elements but with an overall lo-fi aesthetic that relies on painted sets and physical set-dressing, embracing audience interaction and accessible theatrical language.Let us know what you thought of the episode on social media or email in. Would you have taken a more minimalist approach? Would you aim for a higher-budget production? Do you think the stigma around Pantomime would prevent the emotional resonance of the film shining through?Twitter/Instagram: @maybeulikeitFacebook: @maybeyoulikeitEmail: info@maybeyoulikeit.co.ukCaleb is on twitter, instagram and letterboxd @caleblebsterJake is on twitter and letterboxd @jakereeshElspeth is on twitter @elspethrebeccaFind out more about us at https://www.maybeyoulikeit.co.ukMusic is from Kavana CrossleyMaybe You Like It, Maybe You Don't See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We've taken a break from the podcast for the last couple of weeks because Jake and Caleb have been hard at work on our first radio play! It will be released this Wednesday 16th September.Ever since we covered this text on the podcast, we've been hard at work in lockdown to bring you a radio play revival of one of Shaw's funniest plays. This farce takes place in an alternate history: it's April 1st, 1911, Westminster has been completely overrun by suffragettes, compulsory military service is in effect, and it's up to Prime Minister Balsquith and General Mitchener to restore peace and tranquillity to a chaotic Britain. Unfortunately, a harmonious nation requires a little bit of compromise, something Balsquith and Mitchener are not accustomed to. In Press Cuttings, Shaw provides one of his funniest and silliest satires, taking aim at anti-suffragettes, the military, and the lengths politicians will go to to stay in power.For more information about the release go to our website here.

This week we are joined by a very special guest, amateur palaeontologist Ben Wilson, and we're discussing Disney's Dinosaur from 2000. This film made a splash with it's groundbreaking CGI animation interacting with real-life location shoots, and it still holds up 20 years on. With shades of Land Before Time, Tarzan, and the Jungle Book, Dinosaur follows Aladar, an iguanadon raised by early primates, as he joins a herd and attempts to find the hallowed 'nesting ground' after an apocalyptic event. In our staging, we ripoff Walking With Dinosaurs, War Horse, the Natural History Museum, and Universal's Jurassic Park Ride... all at once. Ben Wilson also gives us some of his coveted dinosaur facts at the end!Here's the trailer for Walking With Dinosaurs Live that Caleb promised to link below:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIQPW7EiYEAIf you enjoyed the episode then share it around, and give our back catalogue a listen.

The film follows Cassius Green (LaKeith Stanfield) in an alternate version of modern-day Oakland as he takes a job as a telemarketer at a strange firm called Regal View. As Cassius progresses through the company by using his "white voice" (David Cross) he struggles to maintain his relationship with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson) and his protesting co-workers (Steven Yeun and Jermaine Fowler) before Mr (Omari Hardwick) takes him to a party at CEO Steven Lift's (Armie Hammer) house and things take an even weirder and more disturbing turn.As we stage this in our hypothetical theatre we talk about themes of capitalism, wage slavery, code switching, and the price of selling out. We also get into the nitty gritty of engaging the audience through the set design, utilising stylised lighting and atmospheric music, pushing suspension of belief to its extremity on stage, and how we might stage body horror in a believable way.Let us know what you thought of our staging, and what you'd do differently:Twitter: https://twitter.com/maybeulikeitFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/maybeyoulikeitInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/maybeulikeit/?hl=enEmail: info@maybeyoulikeit.co.ukFind out more about us at https://www.maybeyoulikeit.co.ukListen to Colette's podcast here: https://open.spotify.com/show/27U8Lp8tyNOWUZyijpZZdJ?si=x6P_uiQ2SnKwjrybewH9UQCaleb is on twitter, instagram and letterboxd @caleblebsterJake is on twitter, instagram and letterboxd @jakereeshSorry to Bother You is available to watch on Now TV at time of recording.Music is from Kavana CrossleyMaybe You Like It, Maybe You Don't See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This week Jake and Caleb are joined by Gregor Roach to stage Francis Beaumont and John Flether's 1620 play Philaster, or Love lies a Bleeding. An early Jacobean tragicomedy, the play can be read online at project Gutenberg, but here's a synopsis:The play is set in a fictionalised version of the Kingdom of Sicily, ruled by an otherwise-unnamed king. This king's father and predecessor, the ruler of Southern Italy (the Kingdom of Naples), had conquered the island of Sicily and displaced the native royal house; but the heir of that house, and rightful king of Sicily, is Philaster, who lives as a nobleman in the royal court. The king fears him, but cannot kill him, because of the passionate loyalty of the people. The king has a plan, however: with no son of his own, he will marry his daughter Arethusa to a Spanish prince named Pharamond, and make the Spaniard his heir.Arethusa, however, is in love with Philaster, and disdains the Spaniard. Philaster reciprocates the princess's affections, and sends his page Bellario to serve her and to be their intermediary. Arethusa is able to frustrate her father's plan by exposing Pharamond's affair with Megra, a loose gentlewoman of the court; but the Spaniard seeks revenge, by spreading reports that Arethusa is having an affair with Bellario. The passionate Philaster is deceived by the slander, and accepts it as true. During a hunt, Philaster confronts Arethusa; the overwrought protagonist stabs the princess (the incident that gives the play its subtitle). Philaster is interrupted by a passing countryman; they fight, and both men are wounded. Philaster crawls off, and Arethusa is discovered by nobles of the court.Arethusa's and Philaster's wounds are not fatal; both recover. Philaster is found, arrested, and sentenced to death. The king places Philaster in Arethusa's custody; she quickly marries him, which causes the king to decree her death as well. The executions are frustrated when the rebellious citizens capture Pharamond and hold him hostage. The falsehood of Pharamond's accusation against Arethusa is exposed when Bellario is revealed to be a disguised female (she is Euphrasia, a courtier's daughter, infatuated with Philaster). Pharamond retreats to Spain. Since the rightful ruler of Sicily is now the king's son and no alternative presents itself, Philaster is restored to his crown.We have a good old chat about this one, eventually deciding on staging it in LA! Take a listen and let us know your thoughts @maybeulikeit or info@maybeyoulikeit.co.uk. What would you do differently?

Jake and Caleb have finally worked out how to record remotely and so they kick off Season 2 with George Bernard Shaw's 1909 play Press Cuttings! Subtitled A Topical Sketch Compiled from the Editorial and Correspondence Columns of the Daily Papers, It is a farcical comedy about the suffragettes' campaign for votes for women in Britain. Shaw's own pro-feminist views are never articulated by characters in the play, but instead it ridicules the arguments of the anti-suffrage campaigners.The play is set three years in the then future, on April Fool's Day 1912, by which date the actions of the suffragettes are imagined to have led the government to declare martial law in central London. Because of potentially libellous satire of real politicians, the play was originally censored in Britain, but was soon performed in public with minor alterations.Through this play we go on to discuss actor's preparation techniques, tokenism in theatre, and topical art today.
