Ever wondered what an artistic director of a theatre actually does?! Ever felt too silly to ask?! Well...you're not alone. Paul-Ryan Carberry joins the podcast this episode. He is an actor-turned-director and now Artistic Director of Iris Theatre, a theatre company producing work at the world-famous St. Paul’s Church in Covent Garden with a mission to produce a fresh and vibrant repertoire of varied work resulting in affordable and accessible theatre while championing new talent from the 98! Paul-Ryan talks to Alexa and Katie about how being an actor in the 98% himself has affected how he directs, why he feels passionately about casting non-familiar faces and how running a theatre company works! Thank you for listening to The 98% even during these technically-not-perfect times of having to record via zoom. But we think you'll agree our fabulous guests make up for it!
