Amongst the great features on offer in this latest issue are:
- JUST FIENNES AND DANDY - Roger Foss believes that Ralph Fiennes will have no trouble switching from playing comedy in God of Carnage in the West End to tragedy in Oedipus at the National
- REVISITING SHAW - Was George Bernard Shaw a wise man of the theatre or just an old chatterbox? With major revivals of Major Barbara and Pygmalion in the offing, Michael Coveney talks to Nicholas Hytner and others to discover there’s more Shavian wisdom than wind.
