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 - The Master and Margarita

[updated 19 March 2011: pictures removed]

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, adapted by Edward Kemp
Directed by Steven Pimlott
Minerva Theatre, Chichester
23 July - 24 September 2004


"...[the acting] is powerful, intense and well-disciplined, a tour-de-force of ensemble playing, led by Samuel West and [sic] Claire Holman, as the eponymous hero and heroine..."

The Stage
"...Samuel West makes a splendid Master, whose lack of confidence is apparent and who is counterbalanced by Clare Holman’s passion and determination as Margarita..."

The Telegraph
"...Samuel West powerfully captures the psychological breakdown of the tormented Master..."

The Independent
"...the depressed and unselfconfident Master (the excellent Sam West)..."

Sunday Telegraph
"...A strong cast is led by Sam West and Clare Holman as the hero and heroine - witty, sexy figures who are distinctly fallible but still embody the survival of decency in a dark world..."
