For the first episode back, I talk to my friend Karen who does Theatrical Design, Scenic Art and Technician Work, primarily in theatre. We talk about what her work is like, how to get into it, to retire or not to retire in theatre, how social media plays a role in the theatre world and getting reviews for your show, finding shows, intersectionality in theatre, how to get a script to the stage and her advice for other women who are interested in this sort of work.
