#5 You Do You, Damsel Productions: on Avril Lavigne, music in theatre, and Gossip Girl
Helloooo, come on in, take off your shoes and settle down for another episode of The You Do You Show, a weekly podcast in which Anna Richmond chats with an arts industry person she admires about the ways pop culture has influenced who they are and what they do.
This week Anna caught up with Damsel Productions founders Kitty Wordsworth and Hannah Hauer-King.
Damsel is a theatre company that brings work by women to the stage. They're committed to developing important, intersectional work that explores the myriad experiences of womanhood. Right now, they're preparing to bring Abi Zakarian's Fabric to Soho Theatre and four non-traditional London spaces.
Listen in as Anna, Hannah and Kitty chat about the pop culture that influences the work they make, reminisce about the songs from their teen years that resonate even now, and decide which Gossip Girl character best represents them.
