Rosie speaks to writer and performer Lucy Roslyn about her award-winning black comedy about gender identity and the death penalty, The State vs John Hayes, which is playing at the King’s Head Theatre until 22 November as part of their new writing festival.

She also hears from Laura Bridgeman, a member of butch, transmen and gender rebels collective, The Drakes. Directed by Julie McNamara, they perform at two-day event Just Like a Woman at Chelsea Theatre’s Sacred Festival on 13 – 14 November.

Film director Kate Lane joins us ahead of the UK premiere of her lesbian coming-of-age teen romance Fear of Water, starring Skins’ Lily Loveless, at Roxy Bar & Screen on 14 November as part of South Social Film Festival.

We chat to director Scott Le Crass and producer Justin Savage about Artful Theatre’s new production of The Killing of Sister George, which plays at London Theatre Workshop on New Kings Road from 29 October – 21 November.

For rights reasons the music is not on the podcast, but here’s what we played on the live show:

1) Ezra Furman: Restless Year from the album Perpetual Motion People
2) Rae Spoon: Dangerdangerdanger from the album Love Is a Hunter
3) Courtney Barnett: Avant Gardener
4) Owen Pallett: In Conflict from the album In Conflict
