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. Radio - With Great Pleasure. Mousetrap Theatre Projects.

Sam and Harriet Walter are the readers for next week's episode of With Great Pleasure - Joan Bakewell chose the readings. It will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday 15 February at 11.30am.

The patrons of the Mousetrap Theatre Projects have written about their "inspired beginnings" in theatre. An excerpt from Sam's piece:
"...At one point in the play [a 1972 production of Love's Labours Lost starring his father Timothy West] the three boys have to disguise themselves as Russians, and the director had them come on dressed as cosmonauts with big space helmets, and playing the theme from '2001'. I remember thinking how clever it was of Shakespeare to anticipate the moon landings by nearly 400 years..."
