Behind The Scenes – Robert Icke

BBC Radio 4

Robert Icke is one of Britain’s most exciting and feted young theatre directors. His reputation has been built on re-visiting the classics and updating them – re-writing where necessary and insisting that the plays speak thrillingly to the contemporary audience.

This programme goes behind the scenes at a production of Ibsen’s Wild Duck at the Almeida Theatre, samples Robert Icke’s acclaimed production of Hamlet, and also follows him to Basel in Switzerland where he produces a German language version of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.

Produced by Susan Marling
