InterAct Isolation Readings - Martin Whatley - Gertrude, the Pig with a Problem

Updated: May 3

James Herriot stories are always absolutely brilliant, and 'Gertrude, the Pig with a Problem' is no exception! Fantastically read by Martin Whatley, this story transports you straight into the classic English farmyard.



Since our hospital work had to be put on hold, InterAct's actors have been working hard to record themselves reading their favourite stories and poems to bring our service to you from isolation.

We will be sharing a video reading every other day, so keep an eye out for the next one on Sunday. You can also take a look at many other readings from a huge range of actors (including Helena Bonham Carter and Rula Lenska) on our blog.


We are always trying to think up new ways to support you through this period. At the moment we are working on a new project, 'InterAct at Home', where actors will video call you at home and read to you one-on-one or in a group 'stroke club' setting. If you would like to hear more, please get in touch.

See you all soon.
