This week on Radio DIVA: Eastenders’ Laurie Brett and Valerie Mason-John
Plus Sassy Clyde from Get Over It Productions
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: VALERIE MASON-JOHN, LAURIE BRETT, HEATHER PEACE AND SALLY CLYDE
In the studio this week we have the lovely Laurie Brett, otherwise known as Eastenders’ Jane Beale. Laurie told Radio DIVA earlier:
“I’m really looking forward to catching up with my good pal Heather as I’ve not seen her for a while. It’ll be good to just chat - even if it is live on the radio!”
Award-winning author, poet and DIVA Literary Award winner Valerie Mason-John will also be joining us in the studio to talk about the DIVA Literary Awards and her new and upcoming projects - including working alongside the lovely ladies of #TeamDIVA (tune in to find out more!)
And last, but certainly not least, we have Sally Clyde from all-female theatre company, Get Over It Productions.
"The company formed 10 years ago, and sprung from a desire that the company members had to play 'the good roles' - Hamlet, McBeth, Prospero - instead of the simpering females who are usually dead by the end of Act 1," Clyde told Radio DIVA.
"We’re taking the company from strength to strength and have a production coming up at the end of November called The Balcony by Jean Genet which we'll be chatting about on Radio DIVA!"
Plus you can expect all your usual favourites, including The L Word’s Rachel Shelley with her weekly roving report and resident lesbro Jonathan Phang who'll be updating us on all the latest LGBT headlines.
Listen live to Radio DIVA at 6.30pm every Tuesday (on Resonance 104.4FM and DAB in London and online at player.resonancefm.com) or catch up anytime at mixcloud.com/resonance.
