Big acting names 'returning to theatre'

The "thrill" of theatre is prompting some of the UK's biggest names to return to the stage, actor Rory Kinnear has said.

Mr Kinnear was crowned best actor at the Olivier Awards for his role as Iago in the National Theatre production of Othello.

Lesley Manville, who beat Judi Dench to win best actress for her portrayal of Helene Alving in Ghosts, described how Dame Judi had placed a bet on her to win before the night.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 14 April.
