A very special evening of stories from David Sedaris alongside music from the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Giancarlo Guerrero and featuring a medley arranged by Gary Carpenter.

No matter the time of year, the Grim Reaper could be just around the corner...

David Sedaris is smart, he's biting, and he's one of the world's best storytellers. He skilfully slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness in his droll assessment of the absurdity that teems just below the surface of everyday life. And he is hilarious.

You might have heard his hit series for BBC Radio 4, or maybe you're one of the millions across the world who have read his bestselling books. Now, hear the devastatingly funny man on stage with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. This one-off evening of words and music will leave you in stitches, even if - or perhaps because - the programme is entitled 'Death knows no season'!
