After post-show Q&As for Tonight with Donnie Darko, Vincent River, Angry and Tender Napalm, I'm delighted to be invited to chair another discussion with Philip Ridley, one of the UK's greatest and most innovative living playwrights. This time for the live stage premiere of his online lockdown hit The Poltergeist.
Philip Ridley's Vincent River was premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 2000 and has been revived fairly regularly in the intervening years, including this production which was first seen at the Park Theatre last year and has now transferred to the West End's Trafalgar Studio.
Why should we stay angry? Philip Ridley articulated for me what I so often want to say to people who shrug their shoulders about Donald Trump’s latest assault on human decency.
What a treat to pay my first visit to London's newest venue - The Bunker, carved out of a carpark beneath the Menier Chocolate Factory - to host this post-show Q&A for Tonight with Donny Stixx.
