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).

The Corner Shop PR has released rehearsal pictures from the Young Chekhov season at the Chichester Festival Theatre. Sam will play Trigorin in The Seagull and the title role in Ivanov.

He and Jade Williams were interviewed on the theatre's website.

The Guardian has featured the season in its "hottest plays of autumn 2015":
A rare chance to see the formation of Chekhov’s genius in his three earliest plays in new versions by David Hare directed by Jonathan Kent. A 22-strong ensemble, headed by Anna Chancellor, James McArdle and Samuel West, appears in all three plays which, on certain orgiastic occasions, you’ll be able to see in a single day.
Sam has tweeted some pictures from rehearsals, including books for research and props.
