Description: Dame Harriet Walter has curated a season of dramas for Radio 3, all drawn from the theatre. The first features two of Harold Pinter’s later plays, each providing her with a challenging role she has never taken on before. In ‘A Kind of Alaska’, she is Deborah who has lost the last 29 years to sleep; and in ‘Ashes to Ashes’, Rebecca is haunted by an altogether different kind of loss.

Gruelling fayre.
