VIDEO: Staged Episode 6 - The Intervention



The BBC has released a clip from its hilarious lockdown series Staged featuring David Tennant, Michael Sheen and a very special guest star.

In the six-part comedy written by Simon Evans, David Tennant and Michael Sheen (playing versions of themselves) were due to star in a production of Six Characters in Search of an Author in the West End. The pandemic has put paid to that, but their director (Simon Evans - also playing himself) is determined not to let the opportunity pass him by. He knows how big a chance this is for him and turns his attention to cajoling his stars into rehearsing over the internet. All they need to do is read the first scene, but throughout the series they come up against a multitude of oppositional forces: distraction, boredom, home-schooling and their own egos.

When tensions rise between his two stars and the project appears to be foundering, Simon has no option but to bring in someone to talk sense into them both. Watch below (may not play outside the UK):


Absurd and humorous in equal measure, Staged takes on the challenges of creating a drama in lockdown, on stage and off, with a line-up including Georgia Tennant, Lucy Eaton, Anna Lundberg and Nina Sosanya plus a selection of guest stars. Staged is currently repeating on BBC One on Monday and Tuesday nights at 9.45pm. The whole series is also available as a box set on BBC iPlayer.
