The Nerve is a podcast produced by the English department at Waterford Institute of Technology. Each episode brings together staff and students to discuss a range of topics
In this episode of The Nerve, Jenny talks to theatre-makers Deirdre Dwyer and Nicholas Kavanagh, who facilitated this semester’s English and Theatre Studies Day at WIT.
Deirdre’s new work is the audio drama The Little Robber Girl, which, along with the accompanying postal pack, brings to life the story of tearaway Mattie and her dog, Arthur. This work was written by Deirdre in her role as Theatre Artist in Residence at Garter Lane Arts Centre, and employs the voice talents of several local actors, one of whom is the mercurial Nicholas Kavanagh.
They discuss the process of bringing this unusual project to life, the importance of deadlines and the experience of recording your voice in the hot press.
