Dreams and nightmares are explored in this new podcast that comes with writing from Tim Crouch, Anthony Neilson, Vivienne Franzmann, Dipo Baruwa-Etti, Matilda Ibini and more, and which is produced by English Touring Theatre. The aim, with help from sound designer Max Pappenheim, is to create something both surreal and scary that explores the uncanny strangeness of what goes on inside our heads when we sleep. Or don’t sleep, which has happened to a large swathe of the population during lockdown. Paapa Essiedu and Amber James perform.
A series of short stories for adults performed by Paapa Essiedu and Amber James. Directed by Jennifer Bakst with sound, music and editing by Max Pappenheim, F**ked Up Bedtime Stories explores the weird and wonderful world of dreamscapes and nightmares and the impact that lockdown has had on our sleep cycles. Featuring seven short stories written by Alissa Anne Jeun Yi, Dipo Baruwa-Etti, Tim Crouch, Vivienne Franzmann, Matilda Ibini, Amy Jephta and Anthony Neilson, the project is available through acast, Spotify, apple or wherever you get your podcasts.
