Discussing: John Heywood (part 1)

Host Robert Crighton discusses with Greg Walker, Professor of English at the University of Edinburgh, the playwright John Heywood and his works. In this first part we discuss his early life and his plays - intercut with recordings from our archives - including some of our audio material never released before. You can listen to any of the plays discussed on our John Heywood playlist - and you can also watch a production of The Play of the Weather from the Staging the Henrician Court website. 

Part two will be released soon, where we discuss the rest of Heywood's career, a little more about The Play of the Weather, and his other printed works.

Special Thanks to Professor Greg Walker for giving us his time to speak with us.

Additional voices - Heydn McCabe, Rob Myson, Geir Madland & Simon Nader.  Produced by Robert Crighton.
