The Play’s the Thing

We start the week in County Durham where James travels to see Kynren, the outdoor show that’s “a romp through 2,000 years of English history from the masks of the Roman invaders to the masks of Arthurian legend to the masks of Queen Victoria. Did we say that they were all wearing masks?

Then it’s on to the more serious: the Government’s incomprehensible decision to press on with its vaccine passport plans and the horror of vaccinating healthy 12-15 year-olds in the teeth of their parents’ opposition.

In Culture Corner we cover Shang-Chi and The Legend of the 10 Rings (Marvel/Disney),  the new submarine drama Vigil (BBC One),  and The Chair (Netflix).

This week’s opening sound is of JCVI member Adam Finn on vaccinating children courtesy of The Guardian.
