New One-Off Drama: The Minor Character


David Tennant will be playing the role of Will a ‘witty, acerbic artist’ in a one-off drama for Sky Arts. The production is based on a short story by Will Self which is included in The Undivided Self, a collection of the writer’s short stories.


The production is one of the titles in a new strand called Playhouse Presents that is part of a new lineup of drama and comedies which is announced by the channel following a large budget increase. Emma Thompson will feature in another drama in the season, as will Trevor Eve and Tom Jones, making his acting debut. Other major coups by Sky Arts are the relaunch of The South Bank Show with Melvyn Bragg and the return of Michael Parkinson.


You can download and listen to a recording of Will Self reading The Minor Character via Self’s own website.
