Welcome to episode 36 of Across the Aisle, our third season closer. Can you believe it’s been 3 years of Phil and Carla connecting over deep cuts and giggles? This episode is no different. The gang get dilated pupils of lust at Little Ones Theatre adaptation of Oscar Wildes poem The Nightingale and the Rose – staged at Theatre Works. They then spend quality time with an Indigenous family rocked by suicide in Brothers Wreck at The Malthouse. Both performances affected our hosts quite deeply. In intermission the Philip Thiel Grant for Instagram Stories in announced, Carla does some announcing of her own – that she is now a judge for the Independent Theatre category for the Green Room Awards. MIFF strategies are discussed, as is MICMC (no it’s not roman numerals like Carla thought) and much much more. Thanks for listening and sharing.
