    Behind The Scenes At Hedda Gabler

    Hedda Gabler, Behind The Scenes | Essential Twenty

    You know how I got the chance to see Hedda Gabler earlier in the week? Well this little blogger was invited by the lovely folks at Milton Keynes Theatre to meet with Sian Wiggins, the company manager for the Hedda Gabler tour, to get a taste of what the show means to her, and what it’s like behind the scenes.

    Hedda Gabler, Milton Keynes Theatre

    Hedda Gabler UK Tour 2017/2018 | Essential Twenty

    I love a press night. Okay, so I’ve only been to two before (The Railway Children and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) because getting to London after work is a nightmare, but I love the glitz and glamour of an ATG members room. On Tuesday I was invited to the press night for Hedda Gabler at Milton Keynes theatre, and jumped at the chance to see this sold-out National Theatre production on tour during its final few weeks.

    The Play That Goes Wrong

    The Play That Goes Wrong | Essential Twenty

    It’s been over a month since I last went to the theatre, which is a long time for me.

I’ve spoken to Niall Ransome, one of the show’s understudies, and he can tell you exactly why you’re missing out if you’re not taking the trip! PS. I’m always in awe of understudies, so I was so keen on hearing what Niall had to say!

    The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time

    The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time | Essential Twenty

    I remember browsing the shelves in a Waterstones store that closed down many moons ago with my dad when he pointed out The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time. He’d read great reviews and I ended up buying it for him for a birthday or a Christmas years back. But I never did. Over the past 5 years I’ve heard endless fantastic comments about the National Theatre production and I finally saw the show on Monday!
