"Of the ways. We feel secure. Ms by knowing what not to do that again. This is this opposite thing instead of worrying about what not to do you. Just pay attention to where you are easy and and after you do it for a while in your life you have to trust that just like that day at the meeting. You went to make wrong step. Yeah absolutely. I was intrigued at the beginning. When you were during your introduction. You said how it helps you make decisions about what to do on how to prioritize things so you've got to do list most v. As listening will have a to do list. Probably very long one. And how how do you use that. Do you just decide what's the easiest thing to do on my list or is it more because that might not be the most important thing to do on your list. So how was the self talk that you're going through if any well okay depends on the person right and so so for me. It helps me to take those things off of the list. Put them on separate post it notes on the wall and then what i do is i is. I do this thing called scanning for ease which is to just check in where some wasn't easy place in me or i can do fist and stop squeezing and know that that really aligns my body a little bit until then. That's my baseline of easiness. And then i look at one of the post it notes and i observe what happens to the easiness in my system. I look at that task on that note. If the customer is the same or i smile which is kind of a signal of ease or something you know as well. That's a that's a put on the to do today list. You know. And and then i might have to go through this a couple of times and i come to one goes. He goes on the list. Because you know they tell people. Start with your hardest thing. I mean i sound like a class or something you know if you start with your hardest thing okay. Yes that's good. Get the hardest thing out of the way a they taught you this all the time in school. But if you have to up your energy intention in a way to achieve that venue and everything else should do the rest of the day you hit with that energy.

"It's been difficult this month. My dad's been very unwell. We couldn't go visit him because they're not allowing visitors and all that kind of thing. So yeah it's it's tough.

We talk about how wonderful life is and all these business advice advice that we have and stress jason. We always do sound be but even the most upbeat person has has the occasional down day or tie day. All just generally wants to hibernate day that it has been it. Has i have found it this january more difficult than any other time. But i think have tax accountant husband. Who's doing twelve times more a day. He had my office a lot of the time because he needed to have very private phone gear which he'd normally would have done in the office. It's it feels harder. Yeah i i understand the texts accountant thing because my husband's accountant. He sold his practice. Two years ago just came here but up until then in fact even the first year we were here last december he was still helping out the board his practice and he would do a couple of hundred tax returns a year. And that's a lot for one person to get through especially when your clients don't send in their details in good time. Yes yes lots of that. He would be writing to his clients saying the long-suffering mrs official is worried about my blood pressure. Please send you details in that once. Quite response actually. Anyway i think this is a good conversation to be having before we meet up with our lovely gas. Laura donnelly laura is as i said earlier based in the states. And she's all about doing things with ease in joy and her businesses cool body brain dancing ease and she teaches something called the body brain balance method. Which is based on the alexander technique which i think is so important posthumously especially when we work from home and when we're not out and about as much as we normally ask we come slouch and we don't hold or suspect me so i'm really excited to be shutting to laura. I've known her for quite a long time and through various online groups that we are both members of so i think we should go and get her welcome back listeners. And now we've got the wonderful laura donnelly with us from body brain balance. If i got that right. I got the words and i have a propensity to get words in the wrong order. Don't idir yes.

Tony Awards Preview

"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

"Of all of the research. I've done for this plan would experience I've habit lower. I feel dumb struck actually by the the by what is that? They've had to go through by how it's affected families how it's -ffected Laura's family and thousands and thousands of families. And I think that Laura's normalized the whole thing thinks she she just one of the ways in which generations kind of survive. This is to say that it's no big deal. But it is a big deal. Did you feel a great responsibility to this partly because this is your family? I mean, did you have to feel like a well, he's gonna take this Nicot play out of it? I need to get permission. I felt the sense of responsibility at to my mom. She was the only person that that I really get a lot of thought to and in that moment and discuss it with her, and she was very happy for it to to go ahead. And she's immensely. Proud of the fact that it has become one at has become so that was my main concern what about you? I mean, you're talking to nut someone just as an actor. But as life partner, you can't screw this up. Yeah. That was a nightmare. I think the play doesn't include many actual like. Identifiable details of your family's experience yet that family went through how they spun did how disappearances vanishing 's just as you say pick up the Skype dont allow the normal grieving prices to begin ole of that is is precisely family went through. You know, we have a clip to set it up this rural family. This is right around the harvest time. The this is toast. Mariah first harvest in young and all that all sides. I want you to remember something that a man who takes care of his family's ah Monica himself in the eye in the morning. And I hope you find a stronger rock as I have in your math. Mary. Final behalf this entire clan. Had like to thank kitman for this wonderful food on for everything. She's done for this family over the past ten years. To caitlyn. You start to see all these different themes just in that little clip here you there's a bit of just a simple family story. There's this national politics and loyalty in struggle story. And then there's complicated. Love story. Right, which one is a director, which was or playwright and actor do you pick up on when you're in these scenes, you can't act politics you count? Meaning there's there is no action in not. It's just the background that they're all existing in. But for her the love story on the suppression of love on the secrets that she keeps are what drives her through the entire three acts. It just makes sense. It's just it's just there and. It feels like real life. When you read it so to just get up, and do it seems to be enough. It ready requires any real, you know, cruel barring hidden a clipper one play really is one of the first scenes if not the first scene in the play. You're on a ship with the Rolling Stones the Beatles and Led Zeppelin. It hits an iceberg. There's only room in the lifeboat for you. Plus one of those legendary combos three seconds go Led Zeppelin. You have three seconds. I donate three seconds you'd save Led Zeppelin. The beatles. The stones. They're all going to join. Later on in that scene. You kind of start to as an audience member..

"And the beginning of the end in I'll tell you one quick story. The first day at Columbine was exactly what you would expect Panama, Panama, chaos, kids, each other and clenching and sobbing the next morning as what did a number on me. Because. Threw me for a loop. There was none of that. I was more than a thousand kids, not a tear. They have these blank looks on their faces. Shellshocked PTSD terms. It's a numb phase. Almost never hits in in that kind of numbers. They were completely taken by surprise. They didn't expect anything like this. I didn't see a single blank stare at parkland. And I didn't see obviously all the kids. So they may have been there. But it was these kids were expecting it. And so many of them told me they were expecting, and and you know, the closest actually. David sister. Laura Hoge is is amazing. And she was the closest ice ought to that early on. I met her in the kitchen after talking to David a month out. See looked pretty pretty bad. And I saw every three to four weeks for much of the next year. And each time you could see the improvement on her face, and I talked to her several months into this because I want to speak to soon. And I asked her, you know, what am I am what I'm seeing is that is that how you're feeling and she said, yeah. Yeah. I'm definitely getting better. Then I talked to their mom, Rebecca, who's kind of amazing historical. But really real. She said. Yeah. But also still having nightmares. Right. So it's up and down. It's david.

"Me, and I continue to use his principles and king and nonviolence in my everyday life and throughout my protests to make sure that for example, you're not attacking people that are perpetrating evil because we understand that those people will always be there as a movement, we have to attack the source of that evil and be United against that source and not wage war or fights on each other. But wage war against the source of that evil in this instance, that happens to be gun violence gun violence and presumably you have to take on the NRA as well and convince them, and I ask you because. In in the dozens of successes you've had in in bills and other such things over the last year, the NRA counter Tout's their own successes, like several states have enacted again, stand your ground laws and other such gun safety measures of being defeated. Very proud about that I see you wearing a gun safety voter t shirt, what are your political intentions for the upcoming twenty twenty elections, for instance, on this issue to make sure that presidential candidates from either side of the political don't see gun violence as a third rail. They see it as the only rail, but they have to address in the first place because the the top polling issue with young voters across the country is gun violence. It is school shootings. It is everyday shootings. Right. And what we've been working to do is make sure that we're able to increase voter turnout, for example in Florida compared to twenty fourteen we're able to nearly done. Double youth voter turnout in our state. And there's a reason the reason why we don't focus on voting for one party or another one individual or another is because we realize that no matter who is in power if they're are elected by the use. They will have to care about the youth. No matter their political party. And even though the NRA says that they've had these small victories. They we're an organization that is drastically underfunded compared to the National Rifle Association because of your Pierre-Louis grass roots. Right. We don't fund political campaigns. We fun things to make sure students getting politically involved in students are able to go out and go and vote, and they have that ability to do that on their campus.

"Of after you lose somebody, but you can't grieve after an instance like this because you don't lose people to gun by people are stolen from us Stu to gun violence. People don't just happen to dis results of old age in this instance, they happen to die as results of a man or woman with a gun. So what I worked to do on a daily basis and my way of grieving is by going out there and making sure that no matter whether people hate me or love me, they realized that we can't the second. We start debating these issues in the second. We start talking and yelling at each other and not fighting against the source of evil, which has gun violence is a second. We lose Americans. Because that's when somebody else dies as as a result of preventable gun violence as Americans in human beings across the world. We have to realize that we cannot fight against each other. When we're trying to solve an issue like gun violence. We have to fight against gun violence as the source of that evil and site together presumably again. That evil, but I'm just wanna pick up on what you just said, no matter if people love me support me, or if they hate me, this is what I have to do just talk about that, it'll because you have received so much support in your own country and around the world, but you've also received a certain amount of of the haters. You know, the people who simply don't want to see you standing up to gun violence what sort of hate of you to absorb over the last year. Oh, a massive amount. But I I don't I don't feed into it. Because I realized that it's not what is going to end gun violence with going to end gun violence by getting people who hate me, and the people who love me to work the other with the with the understanding that even though you may not believe in new gun laws, even though you may not support us in our efforts. The one thing that I think we can agree on human beings. Is that preventable gun violence is an issue that must be addressed in the United States. And if you believe in funding, mental health care, more, that's great. But don't just say that. As a politician or as an American actually, go out, if you're a politician and fun mental health care to federal level in our schools in our communities, go out and actually hold our politicians accountable in the first place and don't just continue to debate. These issues remain active, you've taken activism grassroots activism to a whole new level. And I wanna know how you feel. It's going what you feel. You've achieved you mentioned the dozens and dozens of gun safety bills and things that have been paused in twenty six states also in the district of Columbia around the country, but the activism itself the movement the fact that you've put this in the public sphere. Wade looks like it can't be denied anymore. Just give me a sense of of what you've had to do. And how you've done that. We've had to go around the across the country and make sure that we aren't voting for Democrats or Republicans, but we're voting for people that actually represent us and care about the fact about whether or not. We live. Through another school day, whether or not we're able to live our walk through school and not be shot on our way to school or in our school. And what that activism is really looked like as. Probably thing. I'm most proud of is the stories that we don't hear. We don't hear the stories of other mass shooting set don't happen or other acts of gun violence that don't happen because the laws that we've created prevent them from happening in the first place. There've been several instances in plotted school shootings and mass shootings that were stopped by the extremist protection orders that ran acted in over the thirteen states that all honesty need be acted in every state because they go through process to disarm people that are arrested themselves or others. Like, you're at my school was that could have been stopped..

"Butterworth's latest play is on Broadway right now. It's his seventh called the Ferryman it set during the troubles the decades-long conflict over Northern Ireland that killed thousands. It tells the story of the Carney family who lived there in Derek. Authorities have just found the body of shameless Carney who's been missing for almost a decade. We find out early on that shameless was killed by the IRA and the family is now left to deal with the fallout of that event. The plays unique in a lot of ways at one point. There are twenty one actors on stage at the same time. One of them is an infant you. Also, see a live goose and a live rabbit. And I mean, it's remarkable. It's a visceral unusual theatrical experience behind all that though the story shines through it's about trauma, and loss and revenge and all the other consequences people encounter when they try to live their lives during conflict jazz is a veteran writer of both stage and screen. He's written about a dozen films along with his plays. And you see that here a younger playwright might have the same grand vision as Butterworth did for the production. But would they have the finesse and thoughtfulness to make it work? It's hard to say. Anyway, let's take a listen to apart from the beginning of the play. This takes place in an alleyway. We see a man named Muldoon. Who's a member of the IRA interrogating, a priest about the discovery of shame his corpse. Do you know who I know? I'm going to ask you some questions. Nylander just want you to answer. How you feel is best. Okay. Good. Do you know who I? Yes. Jim has had a brother an older, brother. Yes. What's his name? His name is Clinton Carney. What can you? Tell me about him. Is a farmer farms fifty acres in the party. She has a wife and a family. He's a good mom was he always a farmer with respect, sir. What game? Are we playing here? Sure, everyone knows sequin Carney is most of all you. You're as priest. Yes, he confesses to you. You hear his confession? Yes. Why don't you tell me everything, you know? I'll by Quin KARN. Just better worth. Welcome to bullseye. It's nice to have you on the show. Thank you. So I imagine this must have been a subject matter that you took up with trepidation as an English guy. Yeah. I think you'd be right about that. Yeah. Yeah. I did everything I could not do. I it really. Ideas. Replace don't come along often enough for me to completely ignore them with this one. I did my best is just struck me as something of a. Fool's errand. I think rights should or any autists for that matter should fence their imaginations, oh, you wouldn't have this much you wouldn't have much, but it's still struck me as a as a bad idea. What were the things that you needed to be careful about not overstated four hundred years of of rolling discontent slash war between the two countries and not took certain hop because you know, I really enjoyed a movie called Hunga which a British or make a cold Steve McQueen made. It was fantastic. And it felt will fantastic. And I also the end of the day. I do kind of have a a skirt mentality was like, well, if this story I thought it was a good one thought it was that it could work. And so it was a chance I was I was willing to take and to be honest with you. Throughout the entire several different runs of the show both sides of the Atlantic. There's been precious little reaction to the fact that I mean, are you surprised by that? Yeah. I think so I think that I was I was kind of being sanguine about it. But kind of prepared for perhaps a bit more reaction. But then you kind of get it with everything from the first play about nineteen fifty I in south, and there was all kinds of gangsters coming forward to do interviews with the Daily Mail saying it wasn't like that. And so I think we go off even at this time. And then then I did with that. It's most of the players I've written take place either in times or places where I have not personally existed. The show concerns man who has disappeared. He's one of what are called the disappeared in Northern Ireland. Can you? You tell me for our listeners who don't know what that is what that is show at the foul think it was the early very early seventies. The IRA switched from a program of murdering people who they thought had portrayed them from within their own organization. This is who had been informers over suspected of big informers and decided to start disappearing them. So that be taken off into the into the middle of nowhere shot and put in an unmarked grave where only the people that did it knew where they were they were. And then in the ensuing weeks months. They would send people to the families to say that that person have been spotted hair they're getting on a ferry or rice tracks. So to keep the idea that this person was alive to keep the hope. Alive and therefore short-circuit the natural process of grief. It was a it was a greater punishment. In some ways that act which frames the play is essential to what you're doing dramatically, which is trying to engage with. That which is both here and gone. I think that's right. And I you know, it's like not allowing a wound to heal. You know, murder has a sell by date people will enter a process of grief, and they will get over it. So in order to keep a population terrified, you have to find ways to as it were preserve that atrocity in the way that you would find ways to preserve bits of bits of a kill by adding salt. And then it was just it was a it. As the play says, it was a fantastic use of resources. How did the idea come to you? Well, I'd wanted to write a play about harvest for good ten or fifteen years, which is usually Hallam my weight before I start writing an idea I've had a lot to give these things are really really long to station period. Mostly because I find writing plays incredibly hard. And. Hard work. So yeah, I been hanging onto the idea of a harvest for about that amount of time. And it was when I met Laura Donnelly he plays Caitlyn in the play is when I'm on the river, which was my previous play, and she's telling me about family history and one night we were watching a documentary about the disappeared. And she somewhat nonchalantly pointed out that one of the. Eighteen or nineteen people featured in the show was how long. And we got talking about it. And it was just kind of one of those subjects that that nor that he and then eventually about a year after that. We attended the funerals of the dissipate had been seemed, and it was one of the most dramatic things I've ever witnessed is one of the men, but was really a boy was sixteen years old when he had been. I've been murdered by the IRA. And it was forty one years before all of his contemporaries who were in the cathedral were all in the early sixties sitting there with their children and their grandchildren running around as his coffin was born in and it just hit me that kind of. Uncertainty for all that time for that family was was. Reminded me of the aeneid reminded me of the unburied on the banks of the of the ICU, and the fact that such timeless timeless and haunting image and that it was guy in front of me. You'll hear the rest of my conversation with Jez Butterworth and just a minute. He says that while writing films comes pretty naturally to him..

The very man reminds us of just what kind of toll such divides can take not only in a country, but even within a family, the Ferryman looks at one of the families of the people who came to be called the disappeared. Belfast-born actress, Laura Donnelly explains they were a group of people who through the course of the seventies and eighties in Northern Ireland where abducted secretly murdered and buried and the families of those people weren't told anything I'm by what has happened to them. Donnelly plays the wife of the man who's. Body has been discovered. She knows this scenario all too. Well, her own was one of the disappeared. And her family was deceived by the Irish Republican Army families were purposely misdirected and received letters from those loved ones and received stories from people who knew well to say that they had been spotted in different places you spotted in England spotted in America and rumors were spread as to why they had been abducted and most of them. It was claimed at the time by the IRA had been informers Donald shared her family story with her partner. Playwright Jez Butterworth what happened to Lois family in the actual disappearance of some physically. Well, you don't know where they are you don't dead or alive. If you're going to see them again, if you should begin prices have morning them or not you're just an absolute stasis, then he Donnelly attended to funerals in Belfast if people whose bodies had recently turned up in shallow graves. And there wasn't a cathedral in Belfast watching a casket be fair it in of a seventeen year old boy died in nineteen seventy one and his friends from school and his family all in the early sixties. And if someone just arrested in time, but that he's being buried today seems to me to be I think up until that point in my life, the most dramatic thing I've ever witnessed yet. He resisted writing about it as an Englishman, it just struck me as a fool's errand. And appreciate what will the problems of that? And it felt like the business it felt like a business, and I felt like the business. And so I did everything I could to resist it, but it wouldn't leave me alone. And then low came to me one morning and said that she was pregnant. And I knew that one of the parts in this was meant for her. And I've been avoiding that the topic for so long, and like a fool I said, well, I will let you that play. It's a play about family and a man trying to keep his together. Even as his past could walk through the door at any moment when these fifty acres of yours on your stood variety with your first harvest, then young and all that all sides. I want you to remember something. That a man who takes care of his family's ah Monica. Look himself in the eye in the morning actor Patty Considine plays Quinn. The head of the family and a former IRA soldier when I read Quinn. I could see a from somebody who was trying to start a new life trying so much to be a different man to the one. He used to be trying to shed his past almost berry his past. But you can't do that. Ultimately, you know, whatever you're trying to suppress. It will come for you with bloody hands. You know, you'll come and get you actress, Laura Donnelly says she doesn't think the Ferryman is about politics as much as it is a family story still. She adds. It's been fifty years essentially since the troubles began in Northern Ireland. And I was watching a documentary, and at the end of that one of the women said that we have to tell our stories, and even if it's not us our children or our children's children until it gets told. And that really moved me because I thought the whole reason that I entering this was to tell stories and to be able to tell one that is truthful to me and read means. A lot and means a lot to my mother is kind of the whole reason ideas for NPR news. I'm Jeff London in New York. Behind every great song.

"Alexander hamilton a million things i haven't done do laura donnelly won best actress for her role in the ferryman so it wasn't all hamilton the firemen of course a play set in the troubles in northern ireland i did not expect that and i'm really glad i prepared to speech anyway that was that was a very very surreal moment but i'm i cannot be more thrilled toward it's essentially a story about family and a story about las and love and i think that those are the things that really resonate with absolutely everybody because a story about nineteen eightyone northern ireland is not gonna necessarily touch everybody soul but stories about love and loss well donnelly let's talk to we'll put sarah arts editor who is there and what not surprise us as well about hamilton no is very good it could have done much better actually i suppose it had record breaking thirty nominations if it had got more than nine that would have been a record harry potter and the curse todd last year got nine alleviates in fact it ended up as you said seven which which ties it with mathilde is the most olivier's a musical has ever got but as you say it is the standout show is no question about that and has in its own way transformed what musical theater is an can be by telling this ancient story as opposed to the founding fathers now through hip hop music and rap in solan rmb's is absolutely extrordinary pizza work but we shouldn't forget of course principally there too to celebrate british theatre which is in fine fettle at the moment last year in in the west end more tickets were sold than ever before there's more money taking the box office even regional fit which is struggling a bit is doing pretty well and so you talked about the ferryman there that is a great new piece of writing by jez butterworth who last one and alleviate in a twenty to twenty two years ago for mojo and it fell apart so he thought you ought to write another play which is jerusalem which very curious but that didn't win so he's written he's written the ferryman that did win he's got a new livia she says.
