Russian Plays, John Gray, Susan Hiller

Rarely if ever is it possible to mention Night Waves and Roman Abramovich in the same breath, but this Monday evening is one of those exceptions. The owner of Chelsea Football Club is sponsoring a season of plays in the West End, including Chekhov's Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard, and Philip Dodd will be discussing how a contemporary Russian company tackles these masterpieces with Paul Allain and Michael Pennington. There'll also be an interview with the philosopher, John Gray, on our desire and search for immortality, and that inveterate explorer of dreams, memories and the supernatural, the artist Susan Hiller, will be talking about her retrospective at Tate Britain. That's all in Night Waves with Philip Dodd here on BBC Radio 3 at the usual time of nine fifteen.

Producer: Zahid Warley.
