Playing Linda Loman, Informer, Geology-inspired art, Ciarán Hodgers

Willy Loman is very much the heart and soul of Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer-prizewinning play, Death of a Salesman. However as a new production opens at the Royal Exchange in Manchester, two actors Maureen Beattie and Marion Bailey - who have played the role of Linda Loman- join Stig to discuss what they found when they played the salesman’s wife. Crime novelist AA Dhand reviews ‘Informer’ a new criminal intelligence thriller set in East London about a police informant programme targeting radicalised youth. ‘Informer’ stars Paddy Considine and newcomer Nabhaan Rizwan. Geology and technology come together in two new exhibitions. The work of artist Dan Holdsworth is the focus of Continuous Topography at the Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art in Sunderland, while at York Art Gallery, there’s a group show, Strata-Rock-Dust-Stars. Cherie Frederico, editor of Aesthetica magazine and Dan Holdsworth join Stig to discuss why the planet has become a new frontier for artists working with digital technology. Liverpool-based Irish poet Ciarán Hodgers is about to take part in the annual Liverpool Irish Festival, which coincides with the publication of Cosmocartography, his first full collection of poetry. The poet discusses his personal experience of migration, which features in his collection, and which is also a theme in this year’s festival. Presenter: Stig Abell Producer: Ekene Akalawu…read more
