Theatia Podsie

Someone New Theatre Company is proud to be collaborating with the Greater Geelong Creative Inc for the annual Theatia Podsie festival, Australia's only outward-facing radio theatre festival! Radio plays are a proud part of Someone New's early days, and we are privileged to be continuing the tradition with the exemplary crew at the GGCI. 

We have been recording radio plays since 2019, when we debuted with E. Watson's adaptation of The Machine Stops, and have continued to churn out productions each year since. Proudly showcasing new scripts and adaptations of classic literature, the radio plays are a monument to accessible theatre: open to all to record, and open to all to consume. 

2021

This year, we are pleased to bring four original scripts to the fore: proudly written, directed, and acted by Victorian creatives. In early 2021, we hosted the WRITE OR WRONG? scriptwriting competition, after its success in lockdown the previous years, with the winning three scripts produced as radio plays. 

The plays, listen below, are a display of local talent. Their casts have been rehearsing to produce them tirelessly, despite lockdowns and delays - but nothing will stand in their way. They are a testament to what creatives can achieve, even when the world is set against them, and though the going will be easier from now on, we at Someone New could not be prouder of a cast and crew that continues to perform exceptionally. 

Despite delays due to lockdown, these plays will be recorded in November 2021. They will be available when edited and processed, and distributed via the GGCI connections. Stay tuned! 

2020

It was a busy year all round, to say the least - but despite everything, Someone New still managed to record and produce the radio play Death & I, a tragicomedy by our own R. O'Connor. We adapted our methods, rehearsed and recorded online, and our editors compiled it from the safety of their own homes: an entirely remote performance, a monument to adaptability and safety!

We have made the best of creative isolation for our productions: from the podcast production of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, this production was a video rehearsals and a full-day recording session from home. We were thrilled to have had a great many wonderful auditions from actors across the country keen to keep creating in lockdown. It was a privilege to bring this original story to life with such a team.

Recorded on Saturday the 7th November, this production has been mastered and is available for all! Thank you to all who contributed to this wonderful production!
