William Gaskell returns to direct Carver stories at Arcola

William Gaskell returns to direct on the stage after 10 years (or so the blurb says) at the Arcola.

He’s a big figure in 20c British theatre. Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre (1965-1972) and Associate Director of the National Theatre during Laurence Olivier’s regime.

The production (originally developed at RADA) dramatises five of Raymond Carver’s stories: What’s in Alaska?, Fat, Cathedral, Put Yourself in My Shoes and Intimacy.

I’m going to try and see it. There’s also a very good Turkish kebab place nearby. The Arcola is based in a very strong Turkish and Kurdish community and has had built a remarkable reputation on the fringe in a short time.
