UK: Playhouse Presents To Repeat The Minor Character Starring David Tennant



David Tennant's 2012 drama The Minor Character will be repeated on Sky Arts 1 on Thursday 20th March. The 30 minute drama was adapted from a short story by Will Self and opened the first run of Playhouse Presents, Sky's much acclaimed series of original dramas showcasing some of the UK's best acting, writing and directing talent.

The Minor Character
David Tennant stars as Will, an artist who observes life in minute detail. His dry commentary ranges from witty engagement to a casual erosive critique of his social set: the urban-suburban, middle-class landscape of his middle-aged friends. Over a series of dinners, drinks and parties, we witness the shifting sands of friendship, marriage, love and lust, and the complexity and corruptness of London circles through Will's eyes. All the while, he entertains us with his reportage and offers us the privilege not only of his profound, inner thoughts, but also of an impartial, outward look into this microcosm of debauchery and selfishness. As the clock cycles on, dreams are broken, relationships are ruined, misfortune strikes, and we, the spectators, are overwhelmed by the randomness and absurdity of life.

Watch The Minor Character on Sky Arts 1 on Thursday 20th March at 9pm GMT. There is a repeat early on Friday morning at 1.45am
