Stories Before Bedtime: New Readers Announced

Written by The Reader, 1st February 2012

It's not long to go until the next Stories Before Bedtime - an evening of twisted love stories read aloud at the Criterion Theatre in London - and not one, but two star guest readers have been added to the bill.

Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani - on-screen lovers in BBC Three sitcom Him And Her - will be appearing to read extracts from Ovid's hilarious poetic elegy The Art of Love.

They'll be joining Niamh Cusack and War Horse's Tom Hiddleston, who will be reading The Courtship of Mr Lyon by Angela Carter and Tennessee Williams's The Kingdom of Heaven respectively. 

With a star-studded and jam packed guest list and some wonderful and definitely unconventional Valentine's day fare being read aloud,  it promises to be another absolutely brilliant event.

Get your tickets now - they're available from the Criterion Box Office, online or by calling 0844 8471778. Tickets cost £12.50/£10 for GIR members/concessions.
