The Curious Incident of the Night Time Pre-Show Insight Sessions

The National Theatre Insight Sessions are an opportunity to take part in an interactive session where you will explore the making of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, and discover how the Creative Team approached the development, rehearsal and production process. We will explore two exciting topics throughout the afternoon!

This session will offer an overview of how the creative team worked collaboratively to bring the production to life, as well as practical demonstrations of how the actors and directors work together in rehearsals to unlock the script!

Technical In Focus , 5pm - 6pm 
This session offers a multi-media insight into the processes used by the design team when imagining this production for the first time. It will explore how the audio/visual elements have evolved in line with the staging of the production, and offer you an understanding of the stagecraft displayed on stage!

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
