About this event


Two of the most celebrated British icons of stage and screen, Sir Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid meet on stage in conversation for the first time.


With gilded acting careers spanning several decades, Jacobi and Reid are universally known for their remarkable performances in theatre and television.


And yet, the pair met only recently when they were brought together on the set of Sally Wainwright's phenomenal BBC One romantic drama series, Last Tango In Halifax.


This led to them recording a debut album, You Are The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me - a gorgeous collection of duets from The Great American Songbook.


Born into a non-theatrical family in the East End, a founding member of the Royal National Theatre, winner of 2 Olivier Awards (Cyrano de Bergerac and Twelfth Night), 1 Tony Award (Much Ado About Nothing), a BAFTA (I, Claudius), holder of 2 knighthoods - British and Danish, as well as their experience of working together, Anne has much to explore with Derek.


Expect an evening of witty and penetrating conversation.


Presented by Fane Productions as part of the 'Sunday Encounters at the Haymarket' season.
