Richard Eyre on Ibsen, Ancient Greek drama and PTSD, Vivien Duffield
After two acclaimed Ibsen productions for the Almeida Theatre in London, Sir Richard Eyre discusses his new adaptation Ibsen's rarely-performed play, Little Eyolf, about a disintegrating marriage.
The Theatre of War is a project that is helping veterans of war in Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from PTSD. Creator Bryan Doerries and actor Jason Isaacs discuss how Ancient Greek drama - being performed by many Hollywood A-listers - is being used in the healing process.
In our series in which benefactors explain their reasons for funding the arts to the tune of many millions of pounds, Dame Vivien Duffield discusses her approach to donating substantial sums to a broad selection of cultural institutions.
