The Jacobeans is an online audio serial, written and performed by Jack Richardson and Hannah Malarski.
Originally debuting as a live comedy act, the characters and situations were later adapted into an audio serial that appeared in Faces For Radio. Versions of the characters were later incorporated into the stage play of the same name, The Jacobeans.
Following the misadventures of Sooty and Bert, a pair of Jacobean-era peasants, the serial is a pointed political satire that skewers the then-in-power "Lord Abbott" and his right-leaning party through the lens of landed gentry and Shakespearian tomfoolery.
The Jacobeans was originally made available for free download via iTunes, and for streaming via SoundCloud.
