"THE PORTAL PODCAST - ALL 12 EPISODES"
Lose yourself in a story of obsession, 40 years of nightlife and 4,000 years of human connection. In The Portal Martin Green, Wils Wilson, and David Greig have woven together a tale of love, music, drugs and deceit over 12 episodes.
A story where two obsessive recordists, and lovers torn apart by circumstance; Etteridge and Angela left us the most incredible collection of 20th century documentation ever made.
From 1947 to 1988 they never met. They recorded any and every aspect of London nightlife, from war-time dance-halls to the legendary M25 raves. But these recordings never saw the light of day until they were discovered in 2016.
Why did they keep these tapes secret? Because for 40 years these parted lovers had been leaving messages for each other in these recordings, a dark, dark story left for us to piece together.
The Portal has been created by Martin Green. This dark tale is not a true story but a Fictional Podcast inspired by moments in Martin’s childhood. Cast includes Dylan Read as Etteridge, Anna Russell Martin & Alison Peebles as Angela. Cast also includes Robbie Jack, Owen Whitelaw, Nadia Albina, Jessica Hardwick and Amanda Wilkin.
Martin has collaborated with a fantastic creative team to realise The Portal. The Podcast is directed by Wils Wilson, who has created performances for The National Theatre, National Theatre of Scotland, The National Theatre of Wales, Bristol Old Vic and the Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh amongst many other critically acclaimed productions. Dramaturgy is by David Greig, the multi award winning writer and Artistic Director of The Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh who has written work for Royal Shakespeare Company, Paines Plough, Edinburgh International Festival, National Theatre of Scotland, The Barbican and adapted Charlie and the Chocolate factory for Drury Lane Theatre, London. Sound design is by Eloise Whitmore, Radio Sound Designer and Producer of Year, who has won numerous awards and worked on productions including BBC’s Tunnel 29, Maxine Peake’s Beryl: A love Story on Two Wheels and created work with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
