Young Chekhov, Robert Seethaler, Mississippi Grind review

Kirsty Lang talks to director Jonathan Kent and the rising star Olivia Vinall about Chichester Festival Theatre's Young Chekhov season. Instead of the familiar, and great, later plays - Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard - Jonathan Kent has assembled an ensemble of 23 actors to perform three of his earliest works, Ivanov, The Seagull and Platonov, in new versions by David Hare. Kent argues that Chekhov was a radical new voice, and Vinall, who is in all the plays, talks about tackling three different roles, all on the same day. Mississippi Grind is a new gambling, road trip movie starring Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds as two down-and-out, inveterate gamblers. The two men bring out the worst in each other but also find redemption in their friendship as they make their way round the casinos of the Southern States. Sophia McDougall reviews. Mississippi Grind opens on general release Friday 23 October cert 15. The creator of E4 teen drama Skins, Bryan Elsley, debates the lack of diversity in UK television drama and how a new TV Writers Development scheme aims to address the imbalance. Austrian novelist Robert Seethaler's sparse new book A Whole Life tells the story of Andreas Egger, who lives a quiet life in the mountains, touched by tragedy but at peace with his intimate knowledge of the landscape and his place in it. Robert discusses how our lives find meaning in the key moments, and how he conveys this in his writing. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Elaine Lester.…read more
