BBC Radio 3 will be broadcasting a series of three plays in September which portray the ruthlessness and dilemmas of absolute rule. The first to be broadcast on 16 September is Marlowe's Tamburlaine. The series continues in subsequent weeks with Friedrich Schiller’s Mary Stuart and Collaborators, the recent National Theatre success with Simon Russell Beale as Stalin and Alex Jennings as Bulgakov. The first play will be broadcast at 20.30. No date or time has been given yet for the Mary Stuart or Collaborators broadcast.
