Strindberg on Radio 3
Radio 3 hosts a series of programmes and features exploring the life and work of August Strindberg, writer, photographer and painter.
August Strindberg (1849-1912) is best known as a writer and playwright, but he was also an extremely radical painter for his time. Tate Modern is hosting the first major UK exhibition to explore his paintings and photographs, as well as his illustrated manuscripts, drawings and sculptures. The exhibition runs from 17th February to 15th May 2005. [Photograph 1886 courtesy of: Strindbergsmuseet, Stockholm]

Sunday 6th March 8pm
Drama on 3 presents a Strindberg Double Bill. Playing With Fire (1892) stars Fiona Shaw and Jonathan Coy and The Pelican (1907) stars Janet McTeer, Naomi Frederick and Rory Kinnear.
The plays represent two distinct periods of the writer's life but are connected by the intense, often contradictory, evocations of family life they contain. These are portraits of passion. Emotionally Strindberg began to explore the psychology of the 20th Century.
