Actor and Beckett performer extraordinaire Lisa Dwan joins Robin and Josie this week ahead of her upcoming World Premiere of No’s Knife at The Old Vic later this year. There’s obviously plenty of Samuel Beckett’s work to discuss as well as everyone’s favourite short story authors, Dante and the best music to read Mills and Boons by.
