Old lag

Hi Spank,

Have you noticed Rollyo is totally unavailable for maintainance? Wanted to search your site to see if you have done a review of Lenny Henry in Othello on stage in the West End. Am sure you went to see it which I did not but hope to listen to the Radio 4 version this Saturday so am curious about the stage production. Believe the production got quite good reviews.


Yep, saw Lenny's Othello, and it was pretty good. I'd be curious to hear what it sounds like on the wireless: The Belated Birthday Girl listened to the radio adaptation of the Ewan McGregor/Chiwetel Ejiofor production a couple of years ago, and insists the language and plotting don't really hold up without visuals. Are they *really* planning to mash the play down to 60 minutes?

Another iPlayer link for anyone who wants to listen to it between February 27th and March 6th:
