TV actress to pay special visit to Nottingham Playhouse

Katherine Parkinson

BAFTA award-winning actress Katherine Parkinson (Doc Martin, The IT Crowd, Sherlock and Humans) will be visiting Nottingham Playhouse for an exclusive, one-night-only event.

An Evening with Katherine Parkinson promises to be an intimate show spent in conversation with Artistic Director Adam Penford. Together they will explore stories of Katherine’s time on stage and screen, with audience members also being given the chance to ask their own questions.

Proceeds from the event will go towards Nottingham Playhouse’s 50:50 Appeal, which raises money to give free theatre tickets to charities and community groups. Since the appeal began in 2013 over 4,000 people have experienced live theatre when they may not have had chance to otherwise.

Katherine Parkinson said: “I’m thrilled to be visiting Nottingham Playhouse and am really looking forward to sharing stories of my time on stage and screen. To do this whilst raising money for the Playhouse’s 50:50 Appeal is fantastic, and I hope more people will be able to visit the theatre as a result.”

Adam Penford added: “I’ve counted Katherine as a colleague and friend for many years and I’m so thrilled she’s agreed to visit us for this unique event. She’s great company; honest, incisive and very, very funny. The Playhouse audience will have an entertaining and insightful evening, with a couple of surprises thrown in along the way.”

An Evening with Katherine Parkinson will take place on Tuesday 14 January 2020. Tickets are on sale at:
