My blog has quite a lot of posts about Samuel West (On Chesil Beach and Darkest Hour) and Charles Edwards (My Fair Lady Australian tour and The Halcyon).
I have also written some posts about diversity in the entertainment industry.

Samuel West. Television - Eternal Law. Theatre - Close the Coalhouse Door. Radio - With Great Pleasure. Narration - Enoch Arden.

(screencap from episode 2 of Eternal Law)

Sam has written a post for the Guardian's Culture Professionals blog which explains how the UK Arts Index can be used in public funding (via his Twitter, @exitthelemming).

He performed at "Gaza Letters", an event for the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (via @PSCupdates). He also shared a picture from the event. Additional pictures can be viewed at Flickr.

Eternal Law publicity: he has been interviewed in The Stage and This is Nottingham.

The Close the Coalhouse Door press release has the full tour dates: Northern Stage (13 April-5 May), Richmond Theatre (9–12 May), The Lowry, Salford (15–19 May), Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield (23 – Saturday 26 May), Yvonne Arnaud (29 May-2 June), Gala Durham (12-16 June), Oxford Playhouse (19–23 June), York Theatre Royal (26-30 June).

A couple of tweets from Sam about recording an upcoming episode of With Great Pleasure:
"This afternoon I did With Great Pleasure with the force of nature known as Nicholas Parsons. I have Arrived."
"The other reader was someone called Prunella Scales. She seems very promising."
His tweets about Enoch Arden include the following:
"Adding a new piece to my narrator repertoire today: Enoch Arden by R. Strauss. It's a melodrama. They don't write them like that any more."
"Two lifer ticks, Isle of Wight concert debut in Tennyson's home town and #afcwimbledon doing the double over Port Vale. Top day."

Sam will be on the judging panel for Off By Heart Shakespeare, a BBC competition. Finals will take place Sunday 29 January 2012, 3pm at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre (via @StageWon).
In other theatre news, he's been featured in the What's on Stage top 100 list of theatre tweeters.
