Sometimes you find more about what you do by talking about it.“If anyone is thinking of applying to go on the show, they should go for it,” she says.Their new tour dates – which include a headline gig tomorrow at Birmingham’s Genting Arena – extends the Little Fictions campaign, following a run of sold out theatre shows, high profile festival appearances across Europe throughout the summer of 2017 and a series of Forest shows.“The title track is about the little fictions when you’re arguing with someone, if you’re both shouting and just being ridiculous with each other.” The reference alluded to his happy relationship with wife Rachael Stirling, the Olivier Award-nominated actress he married in 2015, who is best known for her stage work and her TV work in Tipping the Velvet and The Bletchley Circle.
