John Hannah, Vicky Featherstone and Lee Hall, Playing Nina Simone

Kirsty Lang from the Edinburgh Festivals with director Vicky Featherstone and Billy Elliot author Lee Hall. They discuss their new production, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, which follows group of Catholic schoolgirls on a school choir trip that gets out of control.
