Join Shearsmith and Pemberton live in conversation for an expert analysis of the first five series of their ground-breaking dark comedy anthology show, sharing behind-the-scenes stories and shocking secrets from some of their most memorable episodes. In conversation, they will touch on the genesis of their episode ideas and the inspiration and creation of each show, from scripting and casting through to design, direction, and production. Complete with never-before-heard tales and illuminating behind-the-scenes narrative of the show, this is the definitive event for all fans of Pemberton and Shearsmith.

With unique access to the minds and imaginations of these legendary creators for an event filled with their signature dark humour, you'll find yourself delighted and disturbed in equal measure.

'The joy of these scripts is in being able to appreciate the craft and ambition involved in the sharpness of the dialogue, the cunning of the plotting, and the desire never to repeat themselves, as Pemberton and Shearsmith build each episode into a miniaturist treasure. A must for anyone who wants to write for television, or who just wants to see how the magic is done.' Neil Gaiman
