All the "ars": Artemis Fowl, Arthur Miller and the Arches Theatre Festival

Just brought Mark Fisher's Scottish Theatre Links up to date with a few recent articles.

They include a conversation with Richard Reed Parry of the Arcade Fire, who's contributed music for an installation at the Arches Theatre Festival in Glasgow - and, in the same article, a chat with Adriano Shaplin of the Riot Group. The latter could easily have made a feature in its own right - Shaplin's a bright guy with a lot to say.

There are also a couple of reviews of Arthur Miller's The Crucible performed by a mixed cast of professionals and amateurs for TAG and the National Theatre of Scotland - with mixed results.

My interview with Eoin Colfer was published in much reduced form by the Sunday Times: get in touch if you're an Artemis Fowl fan and I'll send you the full version.

There's also an interview with playwright David Harrower about the success of Blackbird.
