MARGARET ATWOOD: LIVE ON SCREEN  110 mins

2995 MARGARET ATWOOD: LIVE ON SCREEN

This September, the wait is over… the creative team behind NT Live offer audiences worldwide a new cinematic journey! The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed.

The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema broadcast filmed live, as Fane Productions presents an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood’s 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. Live from the London stage, 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.

The Testaments will be published by Vintage and Penguin on 10 September.

Ticket price: $22 full price |  $20 concession
