5/11 Competition – Win Tickets

5/11 is a new play commissioned to mark the 400th anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot. It has obvious contemporary relevance – it is set in 1605 with a war on terror going badly. A group of young religious fanatics is plotting to… well, you get the idea. Mrs Fawkes and I won’t be able to make it, and we were due to review it on press night. So here is your chance lucky readers – you must be willing and available to attend Chichester Festival Theatre this Thursday (18, August) and you will be expected to write a review of the play for the blog.

To win, simply email Guido a piece of juicy gossip or tittle-tattle about a parliamentarian by midday Wednesday. Best piece of gossip wins the tickets. Rules, one piece of gossip per entry, Guido’s decision is final. Competition not open to Hong Kong residents.

Tickets can be bought online, more information here. Thanks to Sarah Wallis @ CFT for the tickets.
