BOOK

Dream A Little Dream, Giovanna Fletcher

"You have to focus," HELLO! Online blogger Giovanna told us about writing her third book, in an exclusive interview with the magazine. "I have stopped going on Twitter and Facebook and checking out what is happening with The Kardashians because, if I am going to spend time away from Buzz, then I don't want to be wasting my time." Dream A Little Dream is certainly not wasted time, a sweet and romantic tale of dreams boyfriends, ex-boyfriends - and finding love where you least expect it.

Out 18 June, from Penguin Books

THEATRE

An Oak Tree

Tim Crouch’s ground-breaking and Obie Award-winning production An Oak Tree will receive a tenth anniversary revival, this summer, playing for two weeks only at the National Theatre. Co-directed by Karl James and Andy Smith, An Oak Tree is an intricate story of loss and suggestion performed by two people: the playwright himself and a different actor at each performance – an actor who will have neither seen nor read a word of the play until they’re in it.
