Actor Paul Rhys explores Complicite’s The Master and Margarita

21st March 2013



After seven years away from the stage, Olivier award nominee Paul Rhys returned as the Master and Professor Woland in Complicite’s staging of Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita (Barbican, and tour). He tells Matt Trueman about sticking with a show for 18 months and why director Simon McBurney brings out the best in him. Expletives not deleted. Recorded in Bloomsbury, 8 March 2013.

People should have an unforgettable experience in the theatre. I don’t think they should go, “That was alright.”
