The Playlist: Week Seven

It’s week seven and time to dust off your dust sheets with Halloween on the horizon. Bond is back this week as Craig graces our screens once more in ‘Spectre’. While Sam Smith’s theme might leave a lot to be desired, the new 007 film is set to meet the high standards of its predecessor ‘Skyfall’. Also, returning to the screen is British favourites Ian McKellen and Anthony Hopkins in the BBC TV adaptation of Ronald Harwood’s play ‘The Dresser’. ‘The Dresser’ centres on the head of a Shakespearean theatre company (Hopkins) and his stage hand (McKellen) as they struggle to perform King Lear during the worst days of the Blitz in WW2. Back for another instalment is the Live Lounge hosted by Music is Love and STAR with a line-up of student musicians to enjoy with a coffee in Rectors this Thursday. New to the Barron is student-written play ‘Miracle Material’ which tells the story of Nat caught in a media storm and storm of different opinions after a freak accident. Also new this week is Colum McCann’s collection of short stories ‘Thirteen Ways of Looking’. Each of the three stories focuses on time in the present, memory and in anticipation through a missing child, a struggling writer and a nun suffering from dementia.
