My blog has quite a lot of posts about Samuel West (Julius Caesar, On Chesil Beach and Darkest Hour) and Charles Edwards (My Fair Lady Australian tour and Henry IX).

Samuel West - Theatre - Waste

Sam will direct Waste by Harley Granville Barker at the Almeida for its autumn season.

From the London Theatre Guide:
"...Waste, by Harley Granville Barker, opens 2 Oct 2008, following previews from 25 Sep- running to 15 Nov 2008. Directed by Samuel West. Radical independent politician Henry Trebell is persuaded to join the Conservative Party in order to champion his Bill to Disestablish the Church of England and to use its funds to finance a vast education programme. But a liaison with a married woman, who dies after aborting their child, brings private scandal into the political arena..."

I was recently told that Sam is now filming overseas or about to, after cancelling his shows at the City of London Festival.

Thanks for the info :)
That probably means Sam is going to film Out of the Night - it's been listed on his IMDB page for a while.
