Resurrecting Arthur Miller

Resurrecting Arthur Miller


Resurrection Blues
Director Robert Altman
The Old Vic theatre, London

This was Arthur Miller’s last play, completed just a month before his death.

It is a black comedy set in the mountains of a Latin American banana republic where a revolution is brewing.

When the rebels’ leader is captured, a New York production company swoops in to televise his execution.

Directed by Robert Altman, this is an interesting, funny play that attempts to deal with the contemporary issues.

Everybody’s Welcome to the Hooley!
Neck
Out now

Everybody’s Welcome to the Hooley! is the first release on the Militant Entertainment label set up by Geoff Martin, director of the union-run Left Field stage at Glastonbury.

Leeson O’Keeffe, lead singer with Neck, said, “The song’s a reminder to Irish people that they’ve been the victims of racism down the years and that we should be in the forefront of the on-going campaign against racism and intolerance today.”

Proceeds are to go to Unite Against Fascism.
