So here we go – my first list. Seems sensible to have a code to identify what each item is so I’ll go with: live performances (including music and theatre), telly dramas, books, films, RADIO DRAMA, art exhibitions.
hm that might get confusing but hopefully if I list the venue/network it will clarify things… So without further ado here’s my list of cultural adventures for January 2015.
1 January - Birdman 5 January - Broadchurch (ITV) Ep 1 series 2 6 January - THE MEET CUTE (Radio 4) 6 January - The Servant 8 January - LAST OF THE PEARL FISHERS (Radio 4) 11 January - Enemy 12 January - Broadchurch (ITV) Ep 2 series 2 15 January - Time Crimes 17 January - Dallas Buyers Club 20 January - The Eichman Show (BBC Two) 21 January - Wolf Hall Ep 1 (BBC Two) 22/23 January - The Devil's Whore (4OD) 24 January - Les Trois Ruptures (Chelsea Theatre) 25 January - The Albatross 26 January - Broadchurch (ITV) Ep 3 series 2 27 January - Walking the tightrope: The tension between art and politics (Theatre Delicatessen) 28 January - Wolf Hall Ep 2 (BBC Two) 29 January - The Good Wife Series 6 Ep 1 (More 4) 30 January - Walking the tightrope: The tension between art and politics (Theatre Delicatessen)
So it’s safe to say that was a screen heavy month … highlights probably The Dallas Byers Club (superb story and performances all round), Wolf Hall (much anticipated and worth the wait – I could watch Mark Rylance all day) and Walking the Tightrope (only partly because one of the short plays included was by me :))
February promises much with Fireworks at the Royal court, and Olafur Arnalds at the Barbican…
