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. NCA Arts Index, The Soldier's Tale.

(Screencap from a video made by Scene & Heard for the Big Give)

Sam gave a speech at the launch of the National Campaign for the Arts' Arts Index. The text of the speech is here (via his Twitter, @exitthelemming). He was also interviewed on Today - the discussion focuses on philanthropy.

He will narrate The Soldier's Tale at the Wigmore Hall on 3 February 2012.

Law Gazette has a short article about the Peace Brigades International 30th anniversary gala, at which Sam performed in dramatisations of stories about Colombian lawyers.

Last month, Sam read excerpts from Prokofiev's diaries at Music at Tresanton (via travelpr).
He also attended the Sheffield Theatres' 40th celebration (Sheffield Telegraph). Here's a tweet from him about the event:
"Top time @crucibletheatre with @DanCrucibleAD, Grandage and three other ADs last night. Theatre looking very fit at 40. I sent your love."

Berkoff's Macbeth, originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1995, is available for purchase from Spoken World Audio. Sam plays Macduff.
