About this show

Charlie is unremarkable in every way. But one life-changing summer, Fran Fisher unexpectedly bursts into his life and Charlie, despite himself, begins to hope….

From the acclaimed novelist and award-winning screenwriter, David Nicholls, comes the highly-anticipated novel Sweet Sorrow. Poignant, funny, enchanting and devastating, this evocative story has already garnered rave reviews from critics and the public alike.

Now, for one night only, the bestselling author is live at the Bridge Theatre, in conversation about his latest Sunday Times bestseller. David will discuss how he came to write Sweet Sorrow, a hymn to the tragicomedy of family life and a celebration of the deep, reviving power of friendship. He’ll also explore his journey from trained actor to critically acclaimed author, and how his stage experiences informed his award-winning screen-writing.

David’s much-loved novel One Day was an international publishing phenomenon and has gone on to sell over five million copies. His next novel, Us, was long-listed for the Man Booker prize, and he recently wrote the BAFTA award-winning screenplay for Patrick Melrose, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

With a chance to ask your own searching questions, this is an evening with National Book Awards ‘Author of the Year’ you do not want to miss.
