The West Cork podcast is planning another show in Cork.
Journalistic duo Sam Bungey and Jennifer Forde, who gripped audiences at Cork Opera House in October as part of the Cork Podcast Festival, will present ‘West Cork Podcast Live’ at Live at St Luke’s, Cork on April 24th, 2020.
One of Time Magazine’s top 50 favourite podcasts, West Cork guides listeners through the brutal, unsolved murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier, whose body was discovered at her remote holiday home near Schull just days before Christmas in 1996.
Bungey and Forde’s Audible investigation introduced an intricate cast of characters and a provocative prime suspect. The theatre show offers an opportunity for fans to meet the makers and hear exclusive behind the scenes stories about the making of the podcast.
The date has been announced as part of a spring tour that will see the show visit Vicar Street, Dublin and the Black Box Theatre in Galway.
Speaking about the tour, Sam Bungey said: “After 22 years there has finally been a criminal trial over Sophie’s murder, but it was no ordinary trial and it’s not at all clear what it will lead to. We sat in the courtroom in Paris recently as Ian Bailey was convicted of the murder, in absentia. We’ll be talking about what that trial means, along with other developments, as we gather research for new episodes.”
Tickets, €27, go on sale Friday from uTicket.ie.
