Arena: Theatre

on BBC Two England

this month looks at two virtuoso solo performances.
Leonard Rossiter is currently tackling his most demanding role as The Immortal Haydon. Alone on stage for two hours, he portrays the mad 18th-century painter Benjamin Haydon , whose life of wild fantasy and ambition ended in suicide.
Nola Rae is a mime artist, clown, and one of the funniest women on the stage. She re-creates for Arena some of her bizarre and poignant characters, and Michael Dean makes a valiant attempt to interview her.
