He has recorded five bedtime stories for CBeebies, which will be broadcast in January (his Twitter, @exitthelemming).
Sam confirmed that he will perform Garrick's Ode to Shakespeare on tour with Ex Cathedra from 22 April to 28 May, in various venues in the Midlands (the Guardian reported this in 2014).
Last week, Sam went to a protest against the closure of The Cass (the Sir John Cass Art, Architecture and Design Faculty, London Metropolitan University) - see this tweet from the National Campaign for the Arts (NCA) and pictures from @highburyonfoot/Caroline Russell 1|2
The NCA has tweeted their response to the UK government's Spending Review. It was written by Sam, who is the chair of the organisation.
He read from AA Gill at the Comment Awards (@ruthmastenbroek, @susiesymes1, @ayeshahazarika and @exitthelemming).
Sam tweeted a diagram (?) of stage directions from Book of Disquiet rehearsals. It will be performed 21-24 January at Montclair State University (click here for tickets) and the Southbank Centre 24-25 February.
Here is a selection of tweets about D'Apres Shakespeare (Rouen Théâtre des Arts 20 November et Le Havre, Le Volcan 21 November).
Two discoveries in tonight's gig: Debussy's Le Roi Lear and Alwyn's The Magic Island. Only 15 mins between them, but sparkling jewels both.— Samuel West (@exitthelemming) November 20, 2015
In memory of the terrible events of a week ago, we begin tonight with Burgundy's great plea for peace from Henry V: pic.twitter.com/WIx4TKJvon— Samuel West (@exitthelemming) November 20, 2015
In tonight's concert I have to read some Caliban. Enjoying making up an accent; Jamaican Suffolk probably closest.— Samuel West (@exitthelemming) November 20, 2015
