REVIEW OF THE YEAR 2009
Mark Shenton (Sunday Express) and his guests David Benedict (Variety), Charles Spencer (Daily Telegraph), and Matt Wolf (International Herald Tribune) look back over the year in British theatre and select the highs and the lows, the sought-after golden geese and the wringable turkeys. Recorded at the V&A. Expletives not deleted.
