Upstart Crow, Midsummer Night's Dream, Knight of Cups, Louise Erdrich, Mona Hatoum
Shakespeare meets Blackadder in Upstart Crow, Midsummer Night's Dream at the Globe Theatre, Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups, Louise Erdrich's novel LaRose, and artist Mona Hatoum.
Ben Elton has a new sitcom on BBC2; Upstart Crow starring David Mitchell as The Bard of Avon. Could it be a return to his golden form of Blackadder?
A Midsummer Night's Dream is the first production by Emma Rice, the new Artistic Director at London's Globe Theatre. Does it auger well for her residency?
Terrence Malick is a much-admired film director whose recent work has received very mixed critical responses. Will his latest, Knight of Cups, be admired or reviled?
Novelist Louise Erdrich is of North American Indian descent and her work reflects this. Her newest - LaRose - is set in the world of the Ojibwe tribe
Mona Hatoum has a retrospective of her work at Tate Modern - how well does or can it chronicle her conceptual art?
Tom Sutcliffe's guests are Elif Shafak, Denise Mina and Boyd Tonkin. The producer is Oliver Jones.
