Writer and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth presents an entertaining evening of theatrical mishaps and missed cues, indiscreet asides and dramatic first nights, with anecdotes taken from his new anthology. From the most haphazard of touring company to the West End and Broadway, from the age of Shakespeare through to Judi Dench, the stories cover all aspects of the theatrical experience. Actors, playwrights, prompters, producers and critics past and present all play a part. As does the audience. Funny, cringe-worthy, witty, and wise, it’s the ultimate anthology of theatrical anecdotes, and the perfect evening for theatre-lovers. Enjoy the show!
