David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Friday 23rd June 2017

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is an extract from an article of David Tennant discussing playing Romeo in The RSC production of Romeo And Juliet which was performed at The Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon and at the Barbican Theatre in London in 2000.

David said about his role:
"I always wanted to play Romeo. I thought it was a great part full of very recognizable emotions and motivations, with a vibrant youthful energy and sense of poetry with which anyone who has ever been a self-dramatising adolescent can identify. It is suffused with the robust certainty and cynicism of youth, but crowned with a winning and rather beautiful open-heartedness. And it's a great story brilliantly told, full of passion, wit, politics, intrigue, life and death, and topped off with lashings of sex and violence. And we had a great director at the helm in the shape of Michael Boyd, whose work I had been thrilled by for years at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow and more recently at the RSC itself. His productions had always seemed to me to have the power to make the theatre a truly magical place where things happen that could only happen in theatre, so that theatre isn't the poor relation of the feature-film but a genuine living art form specific to itself and nothing else. I'd always been desperately keen to work with Michael and to do it with this play was a dream come true.

And I was running out of time. There is no explicit reference in the text to how old Romeo is, but he is, undeniably, a young man. I didn't have very many years left. I'd always said to myself that it was a part I would have to do before my thirtieth birthday or not at all. Actors older than that have played the part, of course, and I don't doubt that they've done it very well, but I wanted to set myself a deadline. (There are, after all, few more tragic sights than a balding, middle-aged actor, corsetting in his paunch and inelegantly bounding across the stage as an ageing juvenile!) So, at twenty-eight (I would be twenty-nine before the show opened) it was now or never.

And I suppose that playing Romeo had always represented to me the first rung on a ladder that every great classical actor had climbed before ascending to Hamlet, Iago, Macbeth, and so on, finally culminating in a great, definitive King Lear before toppling over and retiring to an old actors' home and telling ribald anecdotes into a great, plummy old age. Not that I am, for a second, categorising myself as a 'great classical axtor', or even aspiring to such term, but the opportunity to follow a path through these famous parts in the wake of actors like Irving, Olivier, Gielgud and others seemed thrilling, and something that, ever since drama school, I've dreamed of doing. This is sort of egocentric thought-process that is not entirely helpful to an actor when it comes to actually approaching a role, and I'm not particularly proud to admit to it now, but I can't deny that it was a part (only a relatively small part, but an important one nevertheless) of what made me say yes to the RSC and to begin to find my own way through the sea of received notions of what the part meant to everyone who was so keen to give me their opinion."

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Wednesday 21st June 2017

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is an interview with David Tennant which was published in Time Out in February 2013.

In this interview David Tennant discussed Broadchurch (which was going to premiere the following month), his stage work and movies.

The interview concludes with 'Perhaps his apparent self-assurance is what made him such a good Doctor Who. However eccentric his career might appear, he's happy with them. If people enjoy his project, even better. If they don't, that's ok too. 

David Tennant is unusual indeed: an actor as happy in his own skin as he is in anyone else's.'

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Saturday 10th June 2017

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a short interview with David Tennant by Official London Theatre which was posted online in March about Don Juan In Soho.

The final two performances of the play are today so we thought it would be interesting to look at an interview from when David was in rehearsals.

What is Don Juan In Soho all about?

"It’s very loosely based on Molière’s play, in an adaptation by the very brilliant Patrick Marber, who’s brought it very much up to date and set it in Soho, in heart of London Theatreland. It’s a couple of days in the life of a very free-spirited chap, to put it politely… how can you describe him? He’s a libertarian, I suppose. I’d say maybe sociopathic. He exists for pleasure, his own pleasure and not really for anything else. He’s promiscuous on an almost psychotic level. He’s tearing his way through the ladies of London - and occasionally the gentlemen - in whatever way he possibly can, leaving carnage in his wake."

You say 'libertarian', which harks back to The Libertine being on in the West End recently. Why do you think we're seeing characters like these back on stage now?

"I think, as a society, we’re all struggling with where we’re headed - there’s something about the idea of someone who genuinely doesn’t give a shit, that we find intoxicating, and a bit terrifying. I think that’s always been the fascination with Don Juan, I think we’re kind of torn when we see a character who is that free. It’s the temptation that we might be able to have a life like that, an apparently carefree existence. There’s something that teases us and thrills us and horrifies us about that kind of psychology."

Are you looking forward to playing Don Juan on stage? Have you done any preparations to get into character?

"Ha! What would those preparations be? The mind boggles. We’re halfway through rehearsals, so we’re quite into the world now, and we have our rehearsal room festooned in images from Soho. Someone went out and cleared a couple of phone boxes, we’ve got some Agent Provocoteur billboards that somebody found, so we’re trying to live that life, we’re trying to get into the red light feel. It’s a great bit of writing by Patrick, he’s created this extraordinary character, that just has this incredible spirit, and articulacy. He’s clearly an awful human being but there’s something utterly compelling about him, and so for an actor that’s a bit hard to resist."

Patrick Marber is directing this production. How is it having the playwright directing you?

"Well, it’s very quick if you want the script tweaked! I’ve known Patrick for years but I’ve never worked in a rehearsal room with him before and I didn’t quite know what that would be like, but he’s very relaxed, he’s very in control. I don’t think every author necessarily should direct their own work, I think those are two skill sets that don’t always go hand in hand, but with Patrick they sit very comfortably side by side. It’s been a very happy, very creative experience so far."

You’re joined on stage by an incredible cast, including Adrian Scarborough and Gawn Grainger. How has it been working with them?

"It’s been great fun. The majority of my stuff is with Adrian, who I first worked with 20 years ago, and he’s just one of those people that, if you’re on stage with him, your shoulders go down, you know you’re safe. He’s one of those people that are so brilliant to play with, and he’s so accomplished. He’s so funny and clever and inventive, and has a little bit of a twinkle all the time. I can’t think of anyone more I would more like to spend all those hours with on stage. But throughout the entire cast there’s some brilliant people. Gawn Grainger is also a very twinkly gentlemen – he’s got so much experience, and bring such a weight and brilliance to what he does. And there’s a lot of people who people may not know necessarily, a lot of fresh new young actors, many of whom I suspect we’ll see a great deal more of."
