Helena Blackman in But First This 27.10.2014

Helena Blackman has her press night this evening in But First This at The Watermill Theatre. But First This is a new "musical homage" to Radio 4, written by BBC newsreader Kathy Clugston and is directed by Michael Kingsbury.

Following a recent survey suggesting Radio 4 was one of the best things about Britain today, this new musical follows the presenters on their quest to foil a new Controller who wants to destroy it.

Helena finished playing Milly Pontipee in the UK Tour of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers earlier this year.
