Shakespeare in China
Scholar Alex Huang discusses the history of Shakespeare performances in China ahead of the production of Richard III by the National Theatre of China - who are making their first visit to the UK.
A performance of Romeo and Juliet, performed by The Galpao Group from Brazil, is coming to The Globe Theatre. It's the classic tale of love, feuding and tragedy - all performed on stilts.
French novelist Laurent Binet's HHhH mixes fact with imagination in a story of Nazi occupation in Europe. The author also pauses to examine the ethics of fiction based on real events.
