We have been asked by the team at Sky Arts to find 10 MN bloggers (with plus ones) to attend a special preview screening of their latest drama starring Stephen Mangan (Episodes).

The screening will take place on Monday 1st June from 6.45pm at a Central London screening room.

Sky Arts say "Stephen Mangan will appear as you’ve never seen him before in new Sky Arts drama, Birthday, written by Joe Penhall (Sunny Afternoon) – adapted from his sell-out 2012 Royal Court play – and directed by the award-winning Roger Michell (Notting Hill). In Birthday, Ed (Mangan) is pregnant, on an NHS maternity ward, already induced, waiting for a caesarean and the imminent birth of his daughter. With his high-flying executive wife at his side (Anna Maxwell Martin, Death Comes to Pemberley) doing her best to remain sympathetic and patient, we follow Ed through the agony, the tears, the humiliation, the anxiety and the ecstasy of labour.

In Penhall’s hilarious, thoughtful and deeply moving script, viewers are invited on an exceptional journey, through existential questions, gross-out humour and high-drama into the very heart of modern relationships."

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Stephen Mangan and writer Joe Penhall who'll discuss what Birthday means to them as a project very close to both their hearts.

Bloggers will have the chance to meet and speak to Stephen and writer Joe Penhall at the event! There’ll also be drinks and nibbles available afterwards for all attendees.

In return we'd like you to add your blog post to a linky page on MN so you can share your opinion with your readers and other MN bloggers. We will tweet your blog post and we'd ask you to share it far and wide!

The blog post will need to include broadcast times and we'd like you to especially tweet the post on Tuesday 9th June before 9pm when it will be broadcast.

Birthday will be shown on Sky Arts on Tuesday 9th June at 9pm so if you're unable to attend (or not selected to) do pop it in your planner!

If you're able and willing to attend, please add your details here and we will be in touch with selected bloggers asap. You will need to make your own way to the screening.
