Year of the Fat Knight

Postby TalyaB » Wed May 06, 2015 11:04 am

Radio 4 is serialising this as Book of the Week and it's fabulous. It's Antony Sher's diary of creating and performing his version of Falstaff. Here's the link to the first episode - they're available for a month: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05ssng2

I remember reading and loving his Year of the King many years ago, long before I knew anyone connected with the theatre, about when he played Richard III, and I can't believe anyone at all interested in acting or theatre wouldn't find both fascinating.

I have the great pleasure and privilege of working with Tony Sher at the moment in Death of a Salesman.

I can scarcely believe my good fortune :)

That sounds wonderful, PG. Well done.
