Heart of Darkness is nominated for a South Bank Sky Arts Award. Something to (Melvyn) Bragg about. In the opera category we are bitterly pitted against Hector Berlioz in a lavish (and brilliant) production of The Damnation of Faust by my old friend Terry Gilliam. O'Regan versus Berlioz: it's a tough draw. You will hear about it if we win, but expect silence. At least I can look forward on Tuesday 1st May at the Dorchester ceremony to raising a glass as old Hector B shuffles up to Melvyn to accept the prize...

Alan Oke (Marlow) and Njabulo Madlala (Thames Captain) in Heart of Darkness.

A new website, handsomely styled and edited by Lucy Shortis and Steve Xerri, will appear soon and incorporate this blog. Information to follow: watch this space: do not adjust your set.
