(You can also check out Jon’s Don John In Souliloquy here).
We are delighted to announce William Sebag-Montefiore is joining ET TU as Sebastian after Twelfth Night. He is joining the In Souliloquy family for our first digital theatre piece of the Et Tu series!
William trained at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. His recent credits include the Sonnet Walks for Shakespeare’s Globe, sitcom Whipped for Koto Films and short-film Retreat by Tom Nicoll. He is co-founder of sketch group Just These, Please, member of Improv troupe Very Serious People and regularly writes for the News Revue.
You can find him on twitter @wsebag
Will is playing a Sebastian, euphoric in love and marriage – he’s not about to let any brooding Petruchio dash his hopes or temper his happiness.
We are very excited to announce for Et Tu – George Turner playing the first of our very fine characters joining the expanding In Souliloquy family – Petruchio from Taming of the Shrew.
George is playing Petruchio both for our digital theatre piece and also live on stage for Briefs (Wednesday, April 5th, Waterloo East Theatre). We are chuffed to have such a great energy in the room!
Theatre: Barrett, A WEDDING TOO FAR, Platform Theatre. Mercutio, ROMEO & JULIET, The Hawth Ampitheatre. Mercutio, ROMEO & JULIET, Brighton Open Air Theatre. Eilert Lovborg, HEDDA GABLER, Gatehouse Theatre. Adam, SOMEONE WHO’LL WATCH OVER ME, The Bridewell Theatre. Steve, PINNING BUTTERFLIES, Central Saint Martins, The Royal Albert Hall. Peter, AFTER THE DANCE, Gatehouse Theatre. Tom, THE ACCRINGTON PALS, The Bridewell Theatre. Short Film: Eustace, WINKING IN THE GARDENS AT SUNSET, British Film Festival.
George plays a Petruchio who is a little bit lost, but his drunken meeting with Sebastian might just wake him up to what he has.
(Meanwhile if you are interested check out our Katherina – we reckon these two probably make a pretty fine pair).
In super exciting news we are announcing a brand new series: ET TU.
Our first year was focused on writing and producing monologues – the form being ideal to explore what digital theatre means to us, but also a way we could ease into a world and build it up brick by brick. It makes then sense to announce as we enter our second year of production a new series of new pieces – six dualogues, each with two characters from different plays, curated into a new situation.
There are funny ones and serious ones (and yes drunk ones) but we can assure you you will recognise both the language, rhythms and voices of these characters even out of context!
Working in this slightly expanded form means we are pushing and exploring our medium, we are playing with what digital theatre can be and we are also expanding our world (yes, think Marvel, we are so there) to bigger stages bit by bit.
The first we are filming is ET TU: Sebastian & Petruchio where these two very quick-to-wed gents discuss the small matters of love and marriage. After Twelfth Night and Taming of the Shrew these men are married and have happy wives at their feet – which explains why they are both out getting drunk on their own in the middle of the night.
This script is also debuting LIVE, next Wednesday the 5th April at BRIEFS – a short play night at the Waterloo East Theatre. Tickets available here. Come join our loving husbands as they work out what it just might mean to have married the love of their life.
We will be announcing both our digital and live casts very soon!
