Snippet from the website;
"the war is over. Beyond the prison walls, Troy and it’s people burn.
Inside the prision, the city’s captive women await their fate. Stalking the antiseptic confines of its mother and baby unit is Hecuba, the fallen Trojan queen. But her grief at what has been before will soon be drowned out by the horror of what is yet to come, as the Greek lust for vengeance consumes everything - man, woman and baby - in its path.
This radical new version of Euripedes’ calssic tragedy comes from one of the UK’s most exciting young poets - Caroline Bird. Directed by the Gate’s Artistic director Christopher Haydon, its is an intense, gripping look at what happens when the world collapses”
The location of the play is:
11 Pembridge Road,
Notting Hill Gate,

Less than 20 minutes ago Louise tweeted:
"Evenin’ all. Might ask Benedict a few questions from Twitterers at Sat’s Q+A. There’s nothing you’d like me to ask, right? #cumberquest
Shortly after Twitter exploded! As questions started pouring in ready for Benedict Cumberbatch to answer, right now ‘#cumberquest is fifth on the United Kingdom trend list. We don’t think Louise was quite ready for the amount of replies and responses she started to receive as she just tweeted the following;
"Shit. It’s trending. *switches off computer and runs screaming down the road* #cumberquest
Well girls and guys get those tweets in now! Tweet what question you’d ask Benedict and don’t forget to attach the hashtag #cumberquest.

A couple of weeks ago TV/Film Projects announced they were going to do a project for Louise Brealey, and have teamed up with us to get as many people involved as possible!
So what is all this about?
We decided to give Loo a boost of confidence to show her how much her fans really do adore her! There are thousands of you, just look at how many follow her on Twitter. So from that moment the Louise Brealey Fanbook Project was introduced, allowing all of Loo’s fans to create pictures and messages to be placed in a book which would be handed over to her.
Will it get to her or just her agent?
It will get to her! - Terri and Charlie and Laura from TV/Film Projects met Louise in July and told Louise about the project and she seemed over joyed about it!
Well what do we get out of it?
Other than getting the amazing opportunity of Loo seeing your personal letter you could win a free Sherlock book to start with. Also you’ll be entered into the online auction to win a copy of series one of Sherlock signed by Louise Brealey herself!
That’s great! Where do I sign up?
