… by which, of course, I mean that you can go out tonight to a roadshow event hosted by the BBC Writersroom. It’s rather short notice, I know – which is why I’ve taken that inappropriate and peremptory tone, to attract your attention – but you may be able to make it.

It is, in fact, one of a number of events which the nice folks at the Writersroom are holding over the next few months – here’s a list:

Tuesday 2 June
Plymouth Theatre Royal

Wednesday 17 June
Sheffield Lyceum Theatre

Wednesday 1 July
Liverpool Everyman Theatre (part of Festival)

Friday 3 July
Nottingham Broadway Cinema (part of festival)

As is usual with these events, you need to make sure that you e-mail in advance to get on the list, but they’re all free, and in my experience of the bashes they’ve held here in London, well worth going along if you can.

Full details – including more info on times and the addresses of the venues – can be found here.
