Not True, But Useful
Episode 5: Words Grown False

Episode Home | Podcast Home | Episodes

Declan and Nick talk about how words can behave treacherously, and explore what this means with staging the great plays. With Fawlty Towers, detective novels, Three Sisters, Othello, Macbeth, and Twelfth Night all in the mix in this week’s episode, they call into question whether we can really trust the words coming out of our mouths. At the end of the episode, they go on a deep dive into the first scene of Twelfth Night.

Twelfth Night scenes:
Act I, Scene 1

King Lear scenes:
Act III, Scene 4

Othello scenes:
Act V, Scene 2

Music by Pavel Akimkin.
