Samuel West talks about TS Eliot

11th November 2008



Heather Neill talks to the actor and director about his career, his passion for verse drama and his approach to playing the part of Harry in The Family Reunion, the centrepiece of the Donmar Warehouse’s current TS Eliot festival.

What is fascinating and difficult for a non-believer is to trust the idea of redemption that lies behind this play – because that’s what Eliot adds to the Greek story.
