First Call, Last Call

The Radio 1 logo had a high profile in Ibiza last month, including the unplanned high spots reported in the tabloids of DJ Lisa I'Anson (right) going loco and Zoe Ball in a bikini. Will the tabloids follow to their next, rather more salubrious location? Newcastle is hosting the Radio 1 Essential Mix Party in October, supported by local club night Shindig and club magazine, Mixmag. The all-nighter even will feature Pete Tong along with Judge Jules, Danny Rampling and DJ Sonique, with Tall Paul and Seb Fontaine spinning back to back for the last two hours.

Continuining Mark Rylance's revival of lesser-known plays from the Elizabethan and Jacobean era is A Mad World, My Masters, an early Thomas Middleton work which has not been performed professionally since the 17th century. A satire of London society, it exposes both the failure of Sir Bounteous Progress to live up to his name when robbed blind by his grandson and the secrets kept by Mistress Harebrain's from her husband, Dick Follywit. Good fun.
