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 - recent and upcoming radio

Sam and Romola Garai were the readers for "Greeneland", last week's episode of Words and Music. It is available on iPlayer for 22 more days.
Also on BBC Radio 3 - he is in three programs from the Sounds of Shakespeare season.
  • 22 April. Garrick's Ode (live broadcast in which he plays Garrick). This performance is sold out.
  • 23 April. Record Review, a discussion of archive recordings. This will be broadcast live from a pop up studio at the RSC's The Other Place.
  • 27 April. Free Thinking, a discussion about The Winter's Tale.

Sam did some readings for Shakespeare in Silence, which will be broadcast 17 April on BBC Radio 4.

He will be in the second series of Blood, Sex and Money on BBC Radio 4. It is an Emile Zola adaptation by Dan Rebellato (Sam's Twitter, @exitthelemming). Other cast members include John Heffernan, Anna Maxwell Martin and Robert Jack (John's Twitter, @johnjheffernan). It will be broadcast in mid-May (Dan's Twitter, @DanRebellato).
In March, Sam tweeted about how Rebellato wrote the script and how it was performed.
