This edition of Inside the Arts: Theatre Edition (formerly Theatre in London On the Air) was broadcast on December 1, 2009. In this show:
- Simon and Jeff talk to John Pacheco, director and co-producer of P.S. Your Cat is Dead and founder of Pacheco Theatre.
- After a clip from the production, the discussion continues and segues into a chat about promoting theatre in the city and Doubt (including Jeff’s script analysis sessions).
- David Ferry joins the group to discuss Reaney Days in the West Room, his collection of James Reaney’s plays, and his introduction to and experiences with the playwright and poet.
- The discussion closes with Pacheco Theatre’s (and Theatre Nemesis’s) policy of open casting, the conversion from the rehearsal room to a production space, and sound design.
- Jeff and Simon run down the current theatre listings and close the first edition of Inside the Arts: Theatre Edition.
