Nicholas Hytner in conversation with Alan Bennett

Wednesday 3rd May 2017 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Nicholas Hytner uncovers the inside story of twelve years at the helm of the National Theatre in a revealing discussion with one of Britain’s most admired icons, Alan Bennett.

As the director of the National theatre from 2003 to 2015, Nicholas Hytner produced over two hundred different shows and directed plays by Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Richard Bean and Alan Bennet himself, among many others. His latest book, Balancing Acts, is a story of lunatic failures and spectacular successes, of opening the doors of the National Theatre to a broader audience than ever before, and of changing the public's perception of what theatre is for.

The award-winning author, actor, playwright and screenwriter, Alan Bennett, will be interviewing Nicholas Hytner on his career, his time at the National Theatre and what prompted him to write Balancing Acts.


Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road

Please note: Nicholas Hytner will be signing after the event. Copies of Keeping On Keeping On by Alan Bennett will be available on the night however he will not be signing.

This was a super event. There was a clearly strong relationship between the 2 men and it seemed that they always enjoyed working together and making allowances for each other's foibles.
