Sun­day Fea­ture: Exit Burbage

RA­DIO 3, 6.45PM

Arts critic An­drew Dixon presents a fas­ci­nat­ing jour­ney be­hind the scenes of how Shake­speare’s plays were first cre­ated, by fo­cus­ing on the very first peo­ple to speak his lines. Dixon be­gins in Shake­speare’s Globe theatre to tell the story of Richard Burbage, one of the ac­tors in Shake­speare’s com­pany for whom many of his great­est parts were writ­ten and who col­lab­o­rated on their cre­ation, a man who was loved by au­di­ences and con­sid­ered one of the most tal­ented lead­ing men of his day.

Ruby Wax: Fraz­zled

RA­DIO 4, 7.15PM

The com­edy lau­re­ate of men­tal health, Ruby Wax, has a spe­cial gift for mak­ing us laugh about men­tal ill­ness. Tonight she sal­lies forth in her idio­syn­cratic style to de­liver a half-hour of in­clu­sive, up­beat and hon­est stand-up about feel­ing “fraz­zled”, feel­ing not good enough in myr­iad ways and be­sieged by bad news, con­stantly on edge about which will kill us first – North Korea, or too much salt. Wax talks about this kind of thing a lot, but it stills feels rel­e­vant and fresh.
