Flip Flap Flop allows all members of the central cast a moment to shine, though what particularly drew me to Tiff's script was the opportunity it gave to make Rudyard increasingly sympathetic without changing who he is. He's so determined to do what he thinks is a good job in the face of overwhelming opposition that I challenge any of our listeners not to be cheering him along by the end! Tiff also finds an entertaining new role for Eric as the drunken life and soul of the party, which allows him a shade more vulnerability than usual, and she was one of the first writers last year to realise that Antigone and Georgie made an excellent pairing for dialogue and action. We'll be seeing more of that throughout the remainder of this season.
You can download Episode 5 from iTunes (where a review is always appreciated!) or from the Wooden Overcoats website. You can also enjoy this trailer for our continuing series of Live Shows, featuring a cracking clip of Felix Trench and Paul Putner from last year's performance of The Trial of Rudyard.
