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."
