The Dark Horse, Sara Taylor, 70 Years of The Glass Menagerie

New Zealand film The Dark Horse is based on the life of Genesis Potini, a bipolar chess champion who inspired young people to avoid gangs and crime by getting involved with chess. Larushka Ivan-Zedah reviews. Author Sara Taylor has been nominated for the Bailey's Prize for her debut novel The Shore. She discusses the interlinked series of stories set in the isolated community she grew up in on the eastern shore of Virginia. It's 150 years since the death of Abraham Lincoln, who was famously assassinated in a theatre. Lincoln was watching the play Our American Cousin by British playwright Tom Taylor, a rarely-performed play which is currently on at the Finborough Theatre in London. The director Lydia Parker and the historian Dr Adam Smith talk about the English country house farce. The Glass Menagerie was the play that launched the career of Tennessee Williams, which premiered on Broadway 70 years ago today. John Lahr, the author of a biography of Williams, reflects on that momentous night. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Olivia Skinner.…read more
