Introducing the first release in our ET TU series! Sebastian is loved up and wants to fix the world, Petruchio is determined his love cannot be fixed.
Welcome to our exclusive and exciting behind the scenes fun of our first Et Tu shoot!
A moody Petruchio, brooding and all out of love awaits the company of Sebastian… reviewing his lines? There were so many great moments on this day!
At times it was very serious. And very fun.
We had a long day in the Players Bar (thanks to the Charing Cross Theatre for hosting our boy and their little drama). Many thanks again to George Turner (Petruchio) and William Sebag-Montfiore (Sebastian) for joining the team to work on Easter Sunday!
Hope you all had a lovely break – stay tuned for more behind the scenes easter eggs (totally went there) and updates as it gets edited and leading up to the release!
Here, enjoy some sneaky pictures of rehearsals for Et Tu: Sebastian & Petruchio.
The first of which started our new favourite hastag #SociallyAcceptableManspreading!
Also featuring in this rehearsal – a director with script fanned out across the floor in an appropriate manner and a writer who used hers as a plate for biscuits.
Thanks to Jon and George for a wonderful first rehearsal – it was a joy to see these characters leap off the page and onto the floor.
Don’t forget you can see them on stage next week (April 5th Waterloo East Theatre in #Briefs).
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!

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!
Today marks the day we start our casting announcements for Cycle 4 – but before we move onto that. Here is a mini recap of who we heard from in Cycle 3.
