A great big sigh of irritation that the BBC has scheduled Michael Grandage’s radio version of his acclaimed Donmar Warehouse production of The Chalk Garden at the same time as the Oliviers. Yes I know that those with computers can also listen later on BBC iPlayer, but both deserve exciting live listening me thinks.

Helen Mirren (The Queen) and Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!) star in a new National Theatre production of Jean Racine’s 1677 classic tragedy Phaedra, directed by Nicholas Hytner. The production will co-star Margaret Tyzack and open in June 2009. In a version by Ted Hughes, the story centres on a Greek myth about a queen who falls passionately in love with her stepson in her husband’s absence.
