Illness Forces Iain Glen to Depart Turgenev’s Fortune’s Fool at the Old Vic

first_img London View Comments Due to an undisclosed illness, Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey star Iain Glen has been forced to quit his role of Kuzovkin in Ivan Turgenev’s Fortune’s Fool at London’s Old Vic. He will be replaced by William Houston in the production, which is scheduled to run through February 22. A statement from the Old Vic’s website read as follows: “Unfortunately Iain Glen is unwell and has been advised by his doctor to withdraw from Fortune’s Fool in order to regain his full health. We are delighted to announce that William Houston will be taking on the role of Kuzovkin and in the meantime, Iain’s understudy, Patrick Cremin continues to give a sterling performance. Everyone at The Old Vic wish Iain a speedy recovery and thank William for stepping into the role at short notice.”center_img In Fortune’s Fool, a penniless gentleman-in-residence welcomes a pair of newlyweds as they arrive at their country estate. Their wealthy and mischievous neighbour Tropatchov calls by for a seemingly innocent celebratory lunch. Fueled by champagne the proceedings degenerate, leading to a shocking revelation with far-reaching consequences. Houston’s stage credits include Troilus and Cressida, Henry IV and Henry V for the RSC. His screen credits include Sherlock Holmes and Clash of the Titans. Glen starred opposite Nicole Kidman on Broadway in The Blue Room. His numerous London stage credits include Uncle Vanya, Ghosts and The Crucible. Glen’s additional film and TV credits include The Iron Lady, Harry Brown, Spooks and The Magdalen Martyr. Fortune’s Fool was last seen on Broadway in 2002. Both Frank Langella and Alan Bates won Tonys for their performances in the production.last_img read more


Sanchez at double for Gunners

first_imgAlexis Sanchez scored twice as Arsenal moved back into the top four of the Barclays Premier League with a 3-0 victory over stubborn Burnley at the Emirates Stadium. The Clarets, in a black away strip, continued their improvement and enjoyed a spell of possession, pushing Arsenal back. But slowly the hosts regained some momentum, with Sanchez and Oxlade-Chamberlain the main agitators. Somehow Burnley survived when Sanchez chipped the ball down the right for Chambers to run onto and cut back across the six-yard box, where Cazorla’s close-range shot was blocked brilliantly by Michael Duff. The visitors’ resistance was, though, finally broken on 70 minutes. A deep ball in from Chambers hung up at the far post, where Sanchez powered between Duff and Trippier to crash a header into the bottom-right corner. Before Burnley could regroup, it was 2-0. A corner from the left came through to Welbeck, whose shot was blocked on the line, with Chambers quick onto the rebound, lashing it in from two yards to celebrate a first Arsenal goal since his summer move from Southampton. Arsenal made a double change with 10 minutes left as Lukas Podolski replaced Welbeck and Walcott came on for Oxlade-Chamberlain, almost 10 months after being carried off in an FA Cup tie against Tottenham with a knee injury which would shatter his World Cup dream. Heaton saved brilliantly from an acrobatic effort by Podolski, and then turned Walcott’s angled drive onto the crossbar before the German saw a fierce left-footed volley crash off the post. Arsenal chalked up a third in stoppage time when the ball was played through the Burnley box to Sanchez, who calmly weaved past two defenders and stabbed the ball in from close range. Press Association The lively Chile forward powered in a header on 70 minutes having earlier been denied by fine saves by busy goalkeeper Tom Heaton and a string of blocks by the dogged Clarets defence. England defender Calum Chambers netted a second two minutes later, lashing in his first Arsenal goal following a corner, with both Heaton and the woodwork saving Burnley futher after Theo Walcott had made a welcome return off the bench from a long-term knee injury. Sanchez, so impressive since a £30million summer move from Barcelona, waltzed in a third during stoppage time as the Gunners moved above West Ham on goal difference, and level with Manchester City, who play on Sunday. As often in such fixtures, it was Arsenal, who made all of the early running, but found Burnley’s two banks of rigid defence difficult to break down. Danny Welbeck weaved into the penalty area, riding a couple of challenges, before his goal-bound shot cannoned behind off Kieran Trippier. On 20 minutes, the Arsenal players were incensed when a corner from the right by Santi Cazorla was pushed away by the fist of George Boyd, who had not long been cautioned for a foul, but was missed by the officials, with the assistant referee David Bryan perfectly placed on the near side. Arsenal continued to press and Cazorla flashed a 10-yard drive wide following Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cut-back. Burnley, looking to get off the foot of the table with a first league win, remained under siege as the busy Sanchez got away down the left and his curling shot was parried out by Heaton, with the follow-up effort from Cazorla blocked. Sanchez whipped another 20-yard drive just wide of the top-right corner before the Chile forward was denied by a fine reaction save from Heaton after darting into the left side of the Burnley penalty area. There was a rare moment of panic in the Arsenal box at the start of the second half as Danny Ings squirmed clear, but between them Per Mertesacker and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny eventually managed to mop up the loose ball. last_img read more

Disappointed Young blasts Waterhouse

first_img TUESDAY’S MEETING FIXING PROBLEMS “You have some people in their office pushing to start a (certain) team and asking why is a player playing or not playing. They don’t know if the player attended training or if he was late. I came in a situation where players are not coming to training, players coming to training late, coming to training drunk, players having injuries and not going to the physio, all these things I try to fix. “I tried to teach them how to be a professional as this is the closest some will come to professionalism, and that is what I was trying to bring to Waterhouse. For them to respect the game and treat it as if their lives depends on it,” Young added. He revealed that following the defeat to Tivoli on Sunday, a meeting was arranged between himself and Vidal, who wanted Donovan Duckie to assist him for the remainder of the season. However, he flatly refused the proposal, and following another meeting with other stakeholders, he decided that they should part ways. “Sunday, after the (Tivoli) game, the president called and said he had a proposal for me. So we met at Jojo’s and he told me he had no problem with my coaching and that I knew what I am doing, but noted that we are not getting the results and asked if I could bring in (Donovan) Duckie to be my assistant. “On Monday, I got an email from the treasurer, (Ainsley) Smeikle, saying the warm-up was poor and that too many old players were in the team. That email was accompanied by another from the manager, Conrad Byfield, agreeing with the treasurer and bashing the players, which I resented. After just one win in nine matches, Waterhouse and former national striker-turned coach, Paul Young, parted ways by mutual consent on Wednesday. The former Waterhouse coach, however, defended his time in charge at the Drewsland club and shared that he walked away following a proposal from the club’s president Fitzroy Vidal to take on Donovan Duckie as an assistant for the rest of the season. Young also accused players of not being professional enough and club administrators of trying to influence team selection. He was very disappointed at leaving the club as he believed they were on the right path.. “At the first staff meeting, I told them we needed to be united on and off the field and that was the only way. But we have members trying to influence who play, when they play and why they play. But the only person I listen to when it comes to team selection is my assistant Shavar (Thomas), and they didn’t take lightly to that,” he explained. “Tuesday after training, I saw the president, vice-president, treasurer, manager, gen-sec, and me and my assistant went in a the meeting, which was chaired by the president. He came with the same (Duckie) story and my response was the same. I told him that the reason why we were here is because some people wanted to influence who play, and I don’t go for that,” he revealed. “They knew that I wouldn’t go for it though, so maybe they wanted to fire me, but never knew how,” he added. Although disappointed, Young said he always knew it was going to be a tough job and wished the Drewsland team the best in their fight to avoid the drop.last_img read more

Talking to Aging Parents About Money: Part 1

first_imgBy Carol ChurchParents teach us and give us so much, from the moment we’re born and throughout their lives. Even long after we’ve reached adulthood, most of us still turn to them from time to time (or more often!) for help, advice, and wisdom.As they grow older, however, adult children may begin to have some concerns about a difficult topic: their parents’ finances and care at the end of life. This conversation can be hard to start. Parents may feel defensive– worried that they are being infantilized or told what to do. Adult children may not want to intrude or hurt feelings, while also being concerned that perhaps, not all is not in order. Sibling issues can get tricky, too.For these reasons and more, many of us may be tempted to avoid this conversation. But it’s essential to start now. Here are six reasons why experts say this conversation can’t wait:Helps prevent the risk of financial abuse or poor financial decisionsUnfortunately, financial elder abuse happens every day, and in families where it would never be expected. It may go undetected for years. Having the money situation above board and known to all is a huge protection.It’s also the case that some older adults have trouble with their finances eventually due to illness or cognitive impairment. Talking more in depth about the situation can make this easier to prevent and put a stop to.Makes it less likely that families will have to go to courtWhen an older adult becomes incapacitated suddenly, it is sometimes necessary for adult children to take legal action simply to get access to funds to pay bills or to make healthcare decisions. Having a plan in place ahead of time means this difficult and time-consuming process won’t be necessary.Reduces the chance of paying too much in probate fees, estate taxes, and other feesWhen financial plans haven’t been made, families run the risk of paying costs they otherwise wouldn’t have had, such as probate fees due to the lack of a will or, if assets are large, the estate tax.Lets children know how to pay for health care and funeral and estate settlement costsAt a time of great family stress, there’s nothing worse than not knowing how to pay for costs of care or for legal assistance needed to settle affairs. When children know where to locate financial information and a plan has been made, this will be avoided.Allows children to know what end of life care is desired and not desiredNo one should have to guess as to what measures a seriously ill person wants taken or not taken. This issue can cause huge rifts between siblings. Typically, when measures such as wills and estate plans are completed, end of life decisions are also finalized and discussed.Ron Porter/Pixabay.com, CC0Decreases stress and opens valuable and meaningful conversations among familiesThough everyone may feel awkward at first, talking about matters like inheritances, family money, the family home, and choices and desires regarding health care and living options at the end of life can actually be rewarding. It can bring families closer while making it less likely that conflict will occur later on, at tense or sorrowful times. It may even lessen the likelihood of family fractures or lifelong pain and regret. For instance, if a family business exists, it is crucial to make a plan for its disposition in advance.For more on how to start this conversation and what to include in plans and documents, visit part 2 of Talking to Aging Parents About Money.References:Fowler, K.

Radical Sikh outfit seeks U.S. intervention in Kashmir issue

first_imgEndorsing “right to self-determination of the Kashmiri people”, radical Sikh outfit Dal Khalsa has urged the U.S. to intervene to resolve the prolonged dispute with the help of the U.N. in the Security Council and tripartite mediation at the political level among India, Pakistan and the Kashmiris.In an open letter to U.S. President Donald Trump, the outfit has expressed concern regarding the political status of Kashmir and the resulting geopolitical situation in South Asia as a result of the Indo-Pak tensions.“We endorse the Kashmiri’s unequivocal right to self-determination and stand-in solidarity with them..Your [Mr. Trump] offer for mediation twice in the last two weeks attains significance as it is quite evident from the history of the last seven decades that India and Pakistan cannot resolve the issue bilaterally, it is time for the U.S. to lead the campaign for mediation as any delay can be disastrous,” wrote Harpal Singh Cheema, president, Dal Khalsa.Dal Khalsa along with the Simranjit Singh Mann-led Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) had criticised the scrapping of Article 370, saying the move would further alienate the people of Kashmir and that peace would be a casualty.Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh on Saturday said the outfit alongwith the SAD (Amritsar) and the United Akali Dal would stage protest in Punjab on August 15.“Our members will peacefully march across 15 districts to lodge our protest against injustices and political subjugation. Also, we will protest against the inconclusive probe into Bargari sacrilege cases of 2015 and the closure report filed by the CBI. The Punjab government’s decision of granting pardon to four police personnel, who were convicted of abduction and killing of a Sikh youth in 1993, is another issue that we will highlight,” said Mr. Kanwar Pal.last_img read more
