Actor and activist Liz Carr on her new show Assisted Suicide: The Musical, director Sharon Maguire on the return of Bridget Jones, and Ann Patchett on her new novel, Commonwealth.
Bridget Jones is back and this time there's a baby. Director Sharon Maguire discusses her return to the film franchise and how to make female focused comedy in the era of the Frat-Pack.
With the news that Sir Nicolas Serota, the Director of Tate, will step down next year, Louisa Buck, contemporary art correspondent for The Art Newspaper, looks back on the career of the man who has held one of the top jobs in the Arts world for 28 years.
Actor, comedian and disability activist Liz Carr explains why she has chosen the spectacular world of musical theatre as the backdrop to explore the complex subject of assisted suicide in her new show Assisted Suicide: The Musical.
After years of avoiding writing about personal experience, Ann Patchett's new novel, Commonwealth, finally succumbs. Based loosely on the ups and downs of her own life, it features two families who are thrown together by infidelity, divorce and remarriage, and explores the impact of these events upon the children over the course of more than fifty years.
