This will be a rare opportunity to discover what has driven his career and what are his most favourite wildlife encounters.
Noughts and Crosses
Malorie Blackman, renowned author of Noughts and Crosses, and Esther Richardson, director of the award-winning stage production, chat to Natasha Tripney prior to the UK tour visiting Bath’s Theatre Royal this month
Published in 2001, the first book in Malorie Blackman’s Noughts and Crosses series introduces readers to an alternative reality in which white-skinned people, the Noughts, and dark-skinned people, the Crosses, are segregated, with the Crosses having more power in society. The story focuses on the relationship between Sephy, a Cross, and Callum, a Nought.
Evolving into a series of six novels, the world of Noughts and Crosses has been the basis of a six-part series for the BBC, as well as a stage play for the Royal Shakespeare Company. The Pilot theatre production, adapted for the stage by poet, playwright and performer Sabrina Mahfouz, is touring to Bath’s Theatre Royal at the start of the month, appearing until Saturday 4th March.

Best-selling author Neil Gaiman talks about the inspiration behind his award-winning book The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and his reaction when he first saw the National Theatre’s thrilling stage adaptation, which tours to Bath this month, appearing at the Theatre Royal from Tuesday 7th to Saturday 18th March.
Joe Absolom, well known for his long-running TV roles in EastEnders and Doc Martin, is set to star as Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption. He chats to us about bringing the iconic film to the stage ahead of his visit to Bath’s Theatre Royal from Monday 27th March to Saturday 1st April.
The classic 1994 film of The Shawshank Redemption is regularly voted as one of the best in cinema history and was nominated for seven Academy Awards. Based on the 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption by celebrated author Stephen King, the stage adaptation of The Shawshank Redemption examines desperation, injustice, friendship and hope behind the claustrophobic bars of a maximum-security facility. This new production is directed by award-winning Broadway director David Esbjornson and adapted by Owen O’Neill and Dave Johns. Click here to read our chat...
