Beg Steal Borrow reports with great pleasure the launch on Radio 4 of The Croft and Pearce Show.

The show is co-written by and stars Hannah Croft, the leading actress in Beg Steal Borrow’s forthcoming feature film, The Benefit of Doubt. Hannah also starred in Beg Steal Borrow’s debut film, En Attendant Godard.

Hannah is one half of comedy double act Croft and Pearce, who recently embarked on a nationwide tour with their latest material – as well as playing several dates in New York.

Evidently, we are super excited and proud to work with such successful and talented performers. And maybe one day our website will be as good as theirs!

The first episode, which aired on 9 March, is currently available here on BBC’s iPlayer.

The Benefit of Doubt tells the story of a young woman, Ariadne (Hannah), who arrives in Nice, France, after the end of a long-term relationship. There she befriends fellow visitors Nick (Nick Marwick) and Greg (Greg Rowe), who embark upon a promenade des anglais (et écossais) around the city so memorably depicted in Jean Vigo’s classic, A propos de Nice, which is a visual inspiration for the film.

Shot in October 2015, The Benefit of Doubt is currently in post-production. Keep your eyes peeled for more on the progress of that film as and when it comes together!

Meanwhile, Hannah’s first Beg Steal Borrow film, En Attendant Godard, will be screened at the University of Roehampton, London, on 18 March 2016 as part of the Film programme’s Film History & Criticism module.
