Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas

Tickets: £17 (£15-£13 concessions) , approx running time: 110mins

Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor Margaret Atwood to mark the release of The Testaments, Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale. The event will be broadcast live via satellite from the National Theatre in London.

The publication of The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression.

Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

“Dear Readers: Everything you’ve ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we’ve been living in.”

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.
