Nigel Wrench writes: "I'm reporting from Stratford-Upon-Avon this evening, and the Royal Shakespeare Company's productions of new plays from young Russian and Ukranian playwrights.

Pictured in the RSC rehearsal rooms, are Peter Peverley, Brian Doherty, Paul Hamilton and a prop (water, apparently) from The Drunks, written by the Durnenkov brothers.

On a table, more props give a flavour of a political satire set in a small town during election time.


Just coming up to twenty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Has it taken that long for a post-Soviet voice to emerge onstage? Some thoughts on that on PM from the RSC's artistic director Michael Boyd.

Not a new Berlin wall, but a big red fence in front of the RSC's home on the River Avon as their theatres are rebuilt. On schedule and on budget, Mr Boyd says."
