Big theatre, big subject, small play

We know what happened in the Holocaust. We know what we think about what happened. And we're wary of playwrights tapping into our responses to these events in their plays: what Peter Hall referred to in his Diaries as "bumming a free ride on the gas chambers". Bravely, two plays open this week that are based on war-time events so terrible they could overwhelm anything the authors have to say.

REVIEW: When forensic science is caught red-handed

If you missed Incredible Evidence (C4), an extended edition of Equinox, don't worry: its findings will be coming soon to a police drama near you. The kernel of the programme's argument was that the evidence provided by forensic science is less rel iable than gullible juries routinely suppose it to be. If the majority of people need be concerned by these findings only in so far as they affect the next outing of Prime Suspect, their effect on the implementation of justice could be seismic.

Zoe Heller in America: Of moving apartments, obscure objects and desires

SOME TIME ago, I was having a conversation with my friend Claudia about how good the chicken sandwiches at the Time Cafe are, and she said, 'You got a real voolly for those sandwiches.' 'Voolly', it turns out, is an Italian-American corruption of the verb volere - to desire. To have a voolly for something is to have a crush on it, or an as yet unsatisfied craving. I am completely enchanted with this word and have been trying to slip it casually into conversations ever since: 'That woman certainly has a voolly for Hershey bars . . .' and so on. Right now, I have a big, big voolly for my new apartment.

INTERVIEW / King rabbit in retirement: After 40 years of bunny-love, Hugh Hefner, founder of the Playboy Organisation, has folded up his silk pyjamas to devote himself to his family. Yet he remains proud of his noble calling

'WHOO]' says Bill, Hugh Hefner's publicity man, slapping his palms together. 'Whooh] We're having some fun here, aren't we?' Bill and I are racing across the grounds of the Playboy Mansion. (Bill wants to show me the famous landmarks on the estate, but he doesn't want us to be late for Hefner.) Starting off on the front lawn, where journalists attending a press conference about the upcoming Playboy Jazz Festival are milling about under a white marquee, we have been past the Jacuzzi grotto, the tennis court, the bunny hutches, the bouquet of giant satellite dishes. We have toured the squawky aviary and the steamy zoo. (Hef-workers shovelling exotic mammal shit: Bill barrelling about dispensing nuts to boot-faced monkeys.) Now we are tramping through Hef's private pine and redwood forestlet.

Saturday Night: It was hell in there for housewives

Pushca Parties have a hard-earned reputation for glamour and excitement. These big-budget productions feature specially constructed sets and furniture, slides, films, good lighting and sound systems. And the fliers are collectors' items.

It's not easy being green: Geoffrey Lean compares the continuing rise of environmental politics in Europe to its sorry demise in Britain

Twenty-one years ago, squeezed between the bunnies, Playboy magazine carried a modern Jeremiah in the shape of Paul Ehrlich, a middle-aged American professor, announcing imminent doom. A Warwickshire solicitor called Tony Whittaker was inspired to go out and found Britain's Green Party, Europe's first.

BOOK REVIEW / Void between celebrities: 'Educating William' - William Cash: Simon & Schuster, 16.99

WILLIAM CASH, after two years as West Coast correspondent for the Times, has written up the experience as his 'memoirs'. Yet the book purports to do something more, namely 'hurl a few javelins into the fruity and crazy caboodle that is modern Tinseltown'.

FILM / NEW RELEASES: Trust accounts: Sheila Johnston is disturbed by a week of suspect innocence and innocent suspects, while . . .

When a child hangs himself for fear of a molester, when a rock superstar dances on a knife's fine edge between philanthrope and paedophile, when the trial for a toddler's murder regularly exhibits new brutalities - how can we, reading these sad stories daily, believe in the innocence of the friendship between adult and child? Thank goodness that, in movieland, we can sometimes snuggle back into this innocence. In the movies a man can still take a child by the hand with impunity.
