INTERVIEW: IAN RICKSON
The director talks to Carole Woddis about his hit West End production of Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour (Comedy Theatre), which stars Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss in a play that was scandalous on its first outing in 1934, and continues to be relevant. Recorded at Graeae.
I constructed a prologue in order to help the audience to feel its way into the sensibility of an outcast.
