Episode 44 – What’s The Name Of The Game with Ian Hallard – Theatre, Abba and everything inbetween.


This week I’m joined by my friend and colleague, the lovely Mr Ian Hallard.

Ian has a vast CV that encompasses everything from two plays at the National Theatre to ‘The Boys In The Band’ in the West End. Alongside of appearances on ‘Doctor Who’ as Alan-a Dale and co- writing with his husband on ‘Agatha Christie’s Poirot’
We discuss the joy of being the ‘Dame’ in Pantomime and some of our shared moments on stage and some of the natural disasters that occurred whilst making that show happen.

We discuss his passions for Abba, Kylie and classic pop and what inspired Ian in his formative years.
Also touching on Ian’s experiences of Pride and what it means to us in 2018.

It’s a lovely honest and relaxed chat that we recorded in Ian’s garden and features guest appearances from a water feature, Ian’s hubby and their gorgeous dogs Bunsen and Bob.
