THE EXHIBITION

Henri Gaudier-Brzeska

If all you know about this artist who died at the age of 24 is the surprisingly restrained Ken Russell film, rush to this show which includes watercolours and some of his masterly drawings as well as the sculpture for which he is best known.

Mercury Gallery, London W1 (0171-734 7800)

THE PLAY

Ballad of Wolves

David Farr directs the second of two "Barbarous Comedies" by little-known Spanish playwright Ramon del Valle Inclan immediately after the success of the first, Silver Face.

7.30pm Gate Theatre, London W11 (0171-229 5387)

THE FILM

The Bridges of Madison County

Eastwood and screenwriter Richard LaGravenese junked almost everything in the execrable book and shifted the point of view to the woman (la Streep). The result should melt the stoniest of hearts. Grade A schlock.

Pictureville Cinema, Bradford (01274 727488)
