He's the anonymous Twitter sensation whose hilarious and unfailingly accurate barbs satirising and celebrating the theatre industry have won him over 35,000 followers. His identity is the subject of feverish speculation in the media, fuelled by his regular appearances at West End opening nights in costume, wig and latex mask. He has become a genuine theatre impresario, launching talent competitions Search for a Twitter Star and its successor, Search for a Twitter Composer.

And now West End Producer is ready to share all he's learnt about how to get ahead in showbusiness, in the form of a handy paperback. Full of the wit and mischievous indiscretion that has gained him such a cult following, packed with gossip and insider knowledge of the theatre business, and containing enough savvy advice on acting to kickstart a career, the book offers tips (both practical and deliciously impractical) on:

  • Getting into drama school (learning how to sit in a circle)
  • Auditioning, and perfecting the neutral vacant stare pose
  • Rehearsals and learning lines (various infallible methods)
  • The different kinds of actor, from sex pest to company idiot
  • Acting techniques, including how to act in a serious play
  • Combating boredom (and avoiding backstage naughtiness)
  • The correct way to bow at the curtain call


Also included are many of WEP's most memorable tweets, miniature comic salvos despatched with all the shrewdness of a man who truly knows his Barrowmans from his Balls.

Have you ever wondered what really goes on behind the scenes of a major West End production? Who holds the power? What you need to do to get to the top? Well you don’t have to wait any longer as West End Producer (or WEP) reveals all (except his true identity!) in this unique new book that blows the lid off of the theatre business.

Written with genuine insider knowledge, "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Acting* - * But Were Afraid to Ask, Dear" lifts up the dustsheet, blows off the cobwebs and shows us the unmade-up face behind the glamorous facade of the West End Theatre industry. Jampacked with information, this is the brilliantly entertaining book on the entertainment business that will grip you tighter than The Woman in Black, have you rolling in the aisles more than Noises Off and singing it’s praises like you were in Les Miserables – which once you’ve finished, you may well be!

Essential and un-putdown-able, you’ll never have read anything quite like this. A hugely practical guide and an hilarious and very Wicked ride through the ups and downs of showbiz this is guaranteed to be a smash hit that literally proves the old adage that - when it comes to success in the theatre – it really is all about the writing and the book, Dear.
