Ellie & Matt are on their holidays, so here’s a quick fix of the Blackshaw Arts Hour to keep you going –
Black Shuck Episode 3 – we’ve heard the tale of legendary Black Shuck, and poor old lopsided Rob’s Dad – we basically had the bejesus scared out of us – so, what was that terrifying noise?!
Talking of terrifying, we can now reveal that Blackshaw’s Scare Slam will be back at the London Horror Festival in October! Details here.
We’re not in the studio this week, but we are still delivering the goods! Here’s episode two of Black Shuck…
We are super excited to announce that ‘Black Shuck’ by Duncan Hands, which we performed at Wandsworth Arts Fringe and the London Horror Festival (2016), is being broadcast on the Blackshaw Arts Hour!
From 1st August you will be able to stream or download the show for FREESIES.
You can see production photos, reviews, and all sorts here.
On this show Matt is reviewing Fifty Shades Darker, the most anticipated review of 2017!
We’re playing a piece of new writing written by Chris Buxey called The Final Adventure of Frankie Fightwell and talking about upcoming WAF shows and PunchDrunk.
This week on the show Iasha, Matt and Ellie are joined by Strat and Alex, doing their very first ‘Art’ on the new segment ‘Strat and Alex Do Art’.
Matt reviews Dr. Strange and maintains his professionalism as he is drawn by our two ‘artists’.Ellie talks to us about something new coming to Cineworld in Wandsworth which is pioneering 4DX cinema experiences and we heard from Owen Collins reciting some of his poetry at a recent Blackshaw new writing night.
Alex and Strat get into position to begin drawing Matt’s portrait for the hour recording
Strat tries to copy Alex’s art/looks on longingly at his ability to art.
Iasha looks happy despite the clowns looming in the background and the adequate art taking place
Strat is hesitant to show his art to the class
After much anticipation the two portraits are revealed to the enjoyment of Ellie and possibly to the horror of Matt. Some fine work produced – Can you tell who’s portraits is whose?
The likeness is uncanny.
This week on the show, Iasha brings you The Blackshaw Arts Hour minus her regular co-hosts.
Matt, Vikki and Nick review the Grand Budapest Hotel and we hear a very funny question from Helen Johnson posed to our cast and crew of Staying Alive at the beginning of the year.
Richard Stratton told us his three top spooky experiences ranging from childhood all the way though to present day, a story that featured in Blackshaw’s Scare Slam last year.
Next up on the show was Beige, a piece of new writing by Dan Weatherer, performed by Richard Malado and Hayley Marie Axe and Directed by Catherine Lord at one of our regular New Writing Nights at the Horse and Stables in Lambeth.

Matt reviewed Captain America: Civil War, after having seen it as part of a triple bill, which we thought was a very good effort!

This week on the Blackshaw Arts Hour Matt and Vikki are in the studio with Iasha, Matt review Eye in the Sky and then we spoke about how it stood up to London Has Fallen in terms of a drone strike movie. Suffice to say Eye in the Sky won.

Vikki did a review/Arts Thing of the Week beginning with The Maids and then talking about the importance of reviving specific plays.
