James Baldwin’s Last Amen

“It just sang to me. It was the most extraordinary script I’ve read. I started reading it on a Saturday morning in bed, finished it about an hour and a half later, and immediately rang Anton and said ‘we have to do this’”

Nicolas Kent features in the BBC Radio 4 documentary James Baldwin’s Last Amen, in which Clarke Peters recalls the 1987 production of The Amen Corner and his unique relationship with the American writer.
