Kate Meets Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss had been due to take place in person at the Minerva Theatre this month; however, the event has been rearranged online on July 22, which would have been the press night for Steven Moffat’s new play The Unfriend, directed by Mark Gatiss (which will be rescheduled to 2021).

The panel discussion will be hosted on Zoom, the free-to-use video conferencing solution. Audience members will not appear on screen, but will be able to submit questions live.
