And now, every weeknight, we bring you an evening longread to enjoy which will help you to escape the news cycle. 

We’ll be keeping an eye on new longreads and digging back into the archives for some classics.

Catherine O’Hara

An interview with the fabulous actor Catherine O’Hara about the brilliant series Schitt’s Creek – and if you haven’t seen it yet, you should.

(The Guardian, approx 10 mins reading time)

“Schitt’s Creek’s suitability for the current moment goes beyond mere plot. After a somewhat conventional first season, the show quickly became much warmer and weirder, with the warmth largely coming from the family’s deep love for one another and the weirdness largely coming from O’Hara. With her daily changing wigs (“my girls”), implausible couture wardrobe and similarly extraordinary vocabulary and intonations, Moira is unlike any other female sitcom character, let alone ones over 60 (typical Kris Jenner-esque parental advice from Moira: “Alexis, what have I told you about putting your body on the internet? Never without proper lighting!”). O’Hara largely constructed the character herself. She has been building her own characters since the 70s, when she worked at the famous improv theatre The Second City in Toronto, as did Levy.”
