First it’s Keith Bartlett, who is part of the Shakespeare’s Globe company that will be reading The King James Bible between 17 and 25 April at the Globe. See http://www.shakespearesglobe.com/ to book and for more information. And then Chuk Iwuji who has the plum role of Buckingham to Kevin Spacey’s Richard III (the final production of the Bridge Project, directed by Sam Mendes) that’s playing at the Old Vic from 18 June to 11 September. http://www.oldvictheatre.com/ has all the details.

The new production of HENRY IV PART ONE is about to open at the Globe and I note that no less than eight  of the company have previously appeared with the RSC.

The title role is to be played by Oliver Cotton whilst Roger Allam will be seen as Falstaff. Other familiar faces from Stratford productions are Jason Baughan, Patrick Brennan, Christopher Godwin, Sean Kearns, William Gaunt and (recently seen in ARABIAN NIGHTS) Kevork Malikyan.


My wife and I are seeing the production in September, so watch this space!

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that Clive was absolutely mesmeric, in the Histories company, as Bolingbroke, Henry IV and the Duke of York. Also in the cast is Dickon Tyrell whom some may remember from the millennium Richard II production that starred Samuel West.
