Until 12 May, Critically Acclaimed

Thursday, 3 May, 2012

In the Solitude of Cotton Fields

by Bernard-Marie Koltès, trans. Jeffrey Wainwright
Tristan Bates Theatre, Covent Garden
Tuesday-Saturday, 8pm & Sundays 4pm

French playwright Koltès’ seminal work of modern European theatre is an extraordinary duologue between two men who meet randomly on the street and who find themselves locked in a struggle between life and death.

British director Kimberley Sykes brings a physical, dynamic new approach to the text as the tension escalates between ‘Dealer’ and ‘Client’ as they engage in a war of words, wills and desires.

Produced by Europa Scenes, who are dedicated to promoting modern European playwriting.


New Radio Show Focuses on London Theatre

Thursday, 3 May, 2012

Tim McArthur will host a new weekly theatreland chat show, launching on Resonance 104.4fm on Friday 11 May 2012. The Curtain Up Show will take a look at the current state of London theatre, showcasing established and up-and-coming talent, both on stage and behind the scenes.

The very first guests will be West End star and recording artist Louise Dearman, and Susan Vidler, who is about to star in A Slow Air at the Tricycle Theatre. Tim will also be joined in the studio for a live Olympic-themed performance by the cast of NewsRevue, the world’s longest-running live comedy show.

Each week, Tim will be joined by two guests, and together they will review the latest theatre openings across the capital, and attempt to unravel the rumours shrouding forthcoming productions.

Fridays 12pm – 1pm
Saturdays 11am – 12pm (repeat)
