Simon Russell Beale
It is a dream come true to be working with Simon Russell Beale and John Simm on this funny, peculiar and frightening play as a part of Trafalgar Transformed. The Hothouse is the third Pinter project I have worked on (following The Caretaker and The Lover & The Collection) and I am thrilled to be introducing Harold's work to a young, diverse audience via our £15 Mondays ticket scheme.
I am delighted that BBC Radio 3 is once again supporting Red Nose Day in 2013, with a wide variety of entertaining programmes. It's great to have such important figures as Simon Russell Beale again bringing their talent to the station for such a great cause. I hope our listeners will enjoy the music and entertainment, as well as the many opportunities to get involved.More quotes »
