THE PLAYERS BACKGROUND
Welcome to our podcast soap opera called 'The Players'.  We will follow the trials and tribulations of setting up a theatre company as brother and sister fight for artistic control and the children struggle to find their identities. Half sisters and brothers are pitted against each other daily.  Ruby, having grown up under the shadow of her more talented brother Michael, finally has the upper hand with financial control.  Talent versus money as the offspring challenge each other and play power games whilst the layabout husband, Edward, debauches his way through Ruby's money and reputation.  Welcome to Dramaticus Theatre Company.
