Phil in Radio Play 'The House of Dr Dee'

Philip Glenister on BBC Radio 4 Extra TODAY Sunday 17th June in a 1997 play: 'THE HOUSE OF DR DEE' at 1:30 pm London time. Also on 3:30 a.m (Monday I assume).

Matthew Palmer inherits an old house haunted by its creepy, black magic past. Stars Philip Glenister and Nigel Anthony." http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0080gm9  I guess it will go to Iplayer too.

Philip is Matthew Palmer. I've heard it before and story rather strange & confusing and didn't grab me. But is worth listening for Phil. He's not in all scenes but in large chunks throughout story.

Aussies you can hear this too. Oz time details here: http://domeofstars.com/forum/index.php?topic=8206.new#new  I assume others outside UK can also hear. Thanks to Allis of Robert Glenister Appreciation Society for heads up.

Phil returns to the London stage!

Phil Glenister will be appearing in a new play at the National Theatre this autumn. He will appear in This House at the Cottesloe from 18 September until 1 December. Co-stars include Phil Daniels and Julian Wadham.

The play is by new writer James Graham and directed by Jeremy Herrin. Tickets go on sale next month.

Here is the blurb from the NT website:

"Let those on the continent cooperate and hug and kiss each other on the ruddy cheek. Here in Britain, one party governs and we get things done.

1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it’s a period when votes are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote.

It’s a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and the building creaks under idiosyncrasies and arcane traditions.

A minority government? No one with any sense or gumption gives you more than a matter of weeks.

You’re gonna fall, and fast, and hard. So start finding things to land on. Now.

Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham’s This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.

This country is being kept alive on aspirin when what it needs is electric bloody shock therapy."

I am very very VERY excited about this!
