Coming to see a performance? Hear directly from the creative people behind the production.

Join Kate Mosse for a pre-show talk with the director of The Chalk Garden, Alan Strachan.

Alan Strachan directed Entertaining Angels (2006) and Mrs Pat (2015) with Penelope Keith at Chichester; his many West End productions range from plays by Coward and Ayckbourn to Tennessee Williams and Shakespeare.

Lasting around 45 minutes, our one-off pre-show talks offer incredible insights into how productions develop from thoughts and ideas, through the rehearsal process, to the performance you see on stage. The international No 1 bestselling author of Labyrinth and The Burning Chambers – and Cicestrian – Kate Mosse will host the Pre and Post-Show Discussions.
