Los Angeles based theatre company Cornerstone have recently put together a fantastic podcast exploring addiction, escapism and how community theatre is benefiting those who've never tried acting before.
It's a fascinating insight and hugely relevant to our forthcoming production of La Bohème.
You can listen to it here.
At the end of the podcast they touch on a really important point that addiction is often linked to shame. Listening to it reminded us of a brilliant TED talk about shame by Brené Brown that you can watch here.
